Museum

History of the house

Clara and Robert Schumann spent the happy first four years of their marriage in the house on Inselstraße 18, constructed in the neo-classical style in 1838 by Friedrich August Scheidel.

Current exhibition

The museum with the current exhibition can be found in the former quarters of Robert and Clara Schumann, on the first floor.

New exhibition

The new permanent exhibition in the Schumann-Haus is conceived as a museum of a partnership, rendering it unique among museums devoted to musicians.

Sound room

The Sound Room, which is designed in the style of the Biedermeier-period, has proven itself an enriching addition to the museum in the Schumann-Haus Leipzig. The centerpiece of this room is the sound installation by the artist Erwin Stache.

Sound playground

A unique addition to Germany’s museum landscape, the Sound Playground combines elements of nature with technical and musical sophistication.
