The Brahms Museum is a museum in the Composers Quarter in Hamburg-Neustadt, Germany. It is dedicated to the classical composer Johannes Brahms.[1]

Collection and activities

The museum was founded in 1971 and is situated on two stories of an historical building in the Peterstraße, near to where Brahms was born. A section of the collection deals with the first three decades of his live in Hamburg.[2] One can see the table piano of Baumgardten & Heins from circa 1860 on which Brahms gave piano lessons. Several utensils from his life are shown, as well as artworks, several busts and an extensive collection of photographs.[1]

There is a library with more than 300 books, the complete edition of Brahms of the publisher G. Henle Verlag, audio recordings, a number replicas of music notations, letters, concert programs, and other documents.[1]

The Lichtwark-Saal of the Carl Toepfer Foundation, a location near to the museum, is a place for temporary Brahms exhibitions, lectures and concerts.[1] Regularly there are walking tours through Hamburg along historical places out of the life of Brahms.[3]
