Richard Wagner Collection in Tribschen
The exhibition on the life and work of Richard Wagner can be viewed on the ground level of the manor. Various exhibits of historic photographs and paintings are on display in five rooms on this level, together with a valuable collection of original manuscripts (letters and musical scores). Several items of Wagner's clothing, as well as pieces of furniture from his stay, have been preserved and are also on display.

A bronze casting of the well-known Wagner bust by Friedrich Schaper can also be seen and, last but not least, the gem of the collection: his Erard grand piano from Paris.

The score for Siegfried Idyll is one of the most important exhibits on display. Richard Wagner composed this piece, which he originally called Tribschener Idyll, as a symphonic birthday greeting for his wife Cosima for her 33rd birthday. It premiered on the manor's staircase in Tribschen on 25 December 1870. On her birthday, Cosima was awakened by the gentle sound of the "Idyll".
