The museum itself is well done and they pack a lot into the relatively small apartment. That said, the price for the ticket alone is far too high at a scathing 12 euros a person. Would recommend attending only if you have the Salzburg card and it's already free.

You'll be sad to have missed this tour if coming to Salzburg. This place is a Mozart lovers dream. The 3D remakes of his operas are truly devine.

We had been to the other location the other side of the river where Mozart lived and so we knew a lot of the history. This place was good but we enjoyed the other more. Well worth the effort if you have a Salzburg card especially.

You can't really come to Salzburg on a Ryanair City break without heading here. Agree with other reviewers that without the Mozart name it's an insight into how some upwardly mobile intelligent hard working and fun loving people had to live some centuries ago. Quite fascinating for all that. All those children who died in infancy, each one remembered and... More

It is a Nice place to visit. Lots of infrmations about Mozart and his family. I find it a little bit expensive, but it worths the Price. The informations are written only in english and german.

If you are going to be in Salzburg for a few days , we recommend buying a Salzburg card so you can see and do many things available for one cost. This was one of many places we went to using our card and so glad we did. The Birthplace of Mozart had so much information we learned about his... More

It was certainly interesting to see his birthplace and I was struck by his violin, piano and letter to his wife. Very cool.

It is often discussed whether the music was Mozart's or his father's. It really doesn't matter and will be debated well into the future. Salzburg itself is absolutely beautiful and with so much to do. One really needs to make the time to visit the Geburtsthaus and soak in the history of Salzburg along with the other beautiful places to... More

Not much to see and you have to pay to enter the museum. If you are a Mozart fan you will enjoy. If you are looking for historical architecture and a story you will not.

I am an an absolute fanatical fan of mozarts music, I have visited mozarts wohnhaus in salzburg and the figaro house in Vienna which are all worth the time and expense to visit. However the geburtshaus was the biggest disappointment and grossly over priced entrance fee that I can ever imagine, there is no feeling of how the family lived,... More
