we went to this because we passed it and it was on our Vienna pass (a great value) It was interesting, there is no original furniture, it has memorabilia. there were some 3D sets. If you want to see how the house was originally you need to look at the model when you first come in. for more pictures see... More

Bit crowded for me to fully enjoy the experience. Am a music lover but found it hard to see some exhibits with the number of people

Fantastic to learn so much about this amazing man! History coming to life. Really cool to be inside this house and to use the audio guide to walk through this place. Really worth the visit!

The museum is very interesting if you're a fan - but I'd give it a miss if you just want to tick it off your list. The rooms can get very crowded and stuffy in summer.

There's a lot of documents and objects from Mozart's time. It's interesting but I expected more... some audiovisual show with Mozart's music. Worth a visit if you already have the Salzburg Card.

It looks nice (like many other historic houses in Salzburg) but I wouldn't recommend this for families with kids -as many other "attractions" in historic cities but is a must-go if you're into classical music. We did not go inside as we had children with us and wouldn't have done it either way as it is much nicer just to... More

Birthplace of Mozart; anything more to say about visiting it? Must visit if you are in Salzburg. Interesting tour of 2 hours or so, specially for musicians and music aficianados.

One of the most frequently visited museums in the world. No other place makes the person behind the artist Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his music as palpable as his birthplace. The biographies of the family members and the authentic impressions of everyday family life fill the house to this day with their spirit to this day and allow visitors to... More

It is located middle of old town in Salzburg. It is yellow building and steps up(no elevator )to 3rd floor. The rooms were small and no air condition. Not much furniture but some pictures. There is other location listed Mozart used to live there.

Just visited the place this morning. It was a nice, small museum; even the wife, who usually does not enjoy museum and reading, liked it! Things are thankfully provided in English and items are nicely annotated; not too much text nor too brief, and very glad that they are not sub-standard.
