The German Music Archive at the German National Library Leipzig invites you to a reception, which gives you the opportunity to get to know the Archives and Library, the collections and how it functions. After welcoming you in our large reading room, we would like to give you a guided tour of the German Music Archive and the German Book and Writing Museum, both of which are parts of the German National Library. In the permanent exhibition of the German Music Archive you will gain an insight into the history of the sound carriers and playback devices from the Edison phonograph to the Blu-ray player. The German Book and Writing Museum is one of the world's oldest and most important museums in the field of 5000 years of media history. After the guided tours we invite you to enjoy a glass of wine with us.
