It was interesting to see the reconstructed home of Wagner and to try and work out the complicated family tree of the composer. It was difficult to find our way around the new building.

The museum is located in the very heart of Bayreuth and it's newly renovated. You can't believe your eyes because of the additional new building to the museum. It was like an invisible building. Museum was wonderful and perfect. A must-see place in Bayreuth.

It is interesting to see about his life and work. But honestly a little boring. For my taste not enough interactive. And things you can find online.

The museum is nice and a Mecca to Wagner if you are one of his fans. You can bow at the entrance. :). Lovely gardens are the best part to enjoy.
