"Grassi-Museum" Other Museums Tip by MichaelFalk1969

Other Museums, Leipzig: 6 reviews and 8 photos

by MichaelFalk1969

The Grassi-Museum was established by the rich Leipzig merchant Grassi (19th century), hence the name. It combines three different collections - musical instruments, an ethnological collection and a museum for applied arts. Plan in some time for a vist or try to see the museums on different days - otherwise you will be overwhelmed by the sheer size of the collections.

My favourite discvovery in the Ethnological Collection was an interactive display explaining the Chinese language, where I found out that the words for "to argue, to nag" or "betrayal" are based on the word for "woman". No kidding.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
