As I wrote, you can skip this attraction. The city has an obsession about Mozart since he was born there (I think that he moved to Vienna during his childhood). There's so little to see in this house and I can't remember if there's an entrance fee. Just roam through the old section of Salzburg, drink a few beers; it's... More

Saw this small house while driving by on a bus tour. It just flashed by in between buildings. There was a Mozart statue in one of the squares that we saw during a ride in a horse-drawn buggy later that day.

A great museum to learn about Mozart´s life, the entrance isn´t cheap but if you use a city museum visit card, like Salzburg Card, it´s quite cheaper.

It was a true unique experience for me and my family to explore Mozart's house, the certain time period in which he grew up (17 years) and his family lived. We were pushed back in time and imagined atmosphere, caracters and events. Loved it!

Not all that expensive and worth every euro, the house is packed with information on Mozarts life and artifacts and you really learn a lot over a few floors. The house itself is like a tardis. Highly recommend.

Although Mozart only loved here until he was nine years old, there are some interesting moments and things from his music to see. Worth about an hour or so.

Excellent museum for either getting to know or rediscover Mozart's life and works. The exhibit goes through his most relevant periods of life and had at the time I visited a temporary exhibit about "The magic flute", which provided a new perspective of the opera in the context of his connection to the mason's guild.

The house this great composer was born is filled up with sheets of his music, musical instruments and many of his personal items. He is the face of the city of Salzburg and the #1 place to go. We didnt go to the Mozart museum across he river due to renovations to the site, but i hope that you do.
