Went into the museum during my visit to Salzburg.. It is a small one shop lot museum and a small 3 floors livings quarter. The museum contain personal letters with translations, personal objects, family history, and they may be fascinating and interesting. There is also the listening room, Be prepared to climb up the floors.

Very poorly done for a museum. This is the house where Mozart was born and lived early life. Sheet music, instruments, buttons, coins, etc. poorly lit, VERY crowded, poorly ventilated. Skip this attraction, and take selfies just in front of the place. The descriptions under each item are in English , German, etc, but the writing was incredibly small. The... More

During a road trip back to Italy from Vienna we stopped in Salzburg for a few hours... We spent almost all of those hours in the Gerburthaus! The museum was very well kept and preserved and gave a wonderful overview of Mozart, the man, his life, his legacy, and his works. Additionally, to be standing in the rooms where he... More

This house where Mozart was born has a display of some oft heir furniture, his compositions and devoting letters his father wrote to his mother while they travelled and the young Mozart performed all over Europe. You need time to go through this little house if you want to absorb everything!

Personal letters with translations were fascinating. Personal objects, family history, all fascinating. The listening room was a much appreciated respite from the wealth of information in the rest of the museum.

The house is painted bright yellow & located in an area dominated by Mozart`s memorabilia places like the museum next to this house, dedicated to his memory,his favorite cafe just on the opposite side & the street named after him-every space seems to be haunted by his memory.He was supposed to have been born & resided here in his growing...

It's cool to see where he was born, but after learning privately about how crappy his parents actually were and how he didn't care for them much, it seems a bit exploitative to charge to see his childhood home. I saw enough from outside.

For how quickly you move through the museum, and for whats actually authentic in the museum, the price is definitely over the top. I mean...you get access to the entire fortress/museum at the top of Salzburg for less than the price of Mozart's birthplace, which is just a small apartment. The majority of what you see in the Mozart museum... More
