With different eyes to  “WOCHE DES SEHENS”


From 9.-12. October, the Bach Museum Leipzig participates in the nationwide WOCHE DES SEHENS on the topic “with different eyes”. People with or without visual impairment are cordially invited to get to know our offerings such as touch stations, the audio tour through the permanent exhibition or the Klangraum “Bach’s Orchestra”. In addition, you can post and send braille postcards, read books with your fingertips, or immerse yourself in other realities with VR glasses: in a painting by Vincent van Gogh or an orchestra pit. Our action table is open from Monday to Friday from 10:00 to 12:00 and 14:00 to 18:00 and Saturday from 10:00 to 18:00.


On Friday, October 12, 2018, we invite you to a guided tour (exploring tactile) at 16:00.


At the “WOCHE DES SEHENS” blind, visually impaired and their companions have free admission.


On October 13, 2018, we will be dedicated to accessibility with an open day with the following program:
