Mendelssohn House, the only museum of its kind in the world, is located at Mendelssohn's last surviving private address in Leipzig.
The late Biedermeier period apartment has housed a museum since 1997. It was first occupied by the family in 1845 and has been restored to look as it would have done in the musician's lifetime. The living room features the composer's original furniture as well as countless watercolours and letters. Concerts are held in the music room on most Sundays at 11am.
