The Bach House in Eisenach (Bachhaus Eisenach) is the oldest museum devoted to the composer Johann Sebastian Bach, who was born in the city. It is housed in a 550 year old half-timbered house, mistakenly identified as Bach's birthplace by the Bach biographer Karl Hermann Bitter. It contains original documents by Bach and provides a specialist library for researchers. In the summer visitors to the museum can also see a small Baroque garden behind the house, whilst a new entrance to the house was completed in 2007.
