When I was last in Salzburg, I didn't have time to visit this museum so I made sure that it was a "must see" on this trip. Mozart is easily my favourite composer so I was very interested in the museum. We were there in August so it was quite busy and extremely warm inside (crowds and no air-conditioning). There... More

We didn't actually have time to visit the inside of Mozarts birthplace but we went by and took some photos. It's the kind of attraction you do just so you can say "been there, done that". Unless you have a strong interest in Mozart.

Well rounded historical presentation of the life, music and zeitgeist of Mozart and his life. Instruments, manuscripts, scores, clothing, paintings, furnishings, even a multimedia room for millenials. You name it, they've got it. The museum's layout is cool too, strolling through a winding multilevel 18th century townhouse. Definitely worth my 10€ admission price. BTW, don't be fooled by the crowds... More

If you are a Mozart fan, you will enjoy this house. It is the place where he was born and it includes many family photos along with a perspective of how families lived. The museum talks about his sister who is rarely referenced for his musical ability along with notes from his wife in children. If you are not a... More

It's more like a museum with Mozart family related pictures, notes, etc. so unless you are a die hard Mozart fan I would skip this. My kids learn classical piano and are more interested in the music than the history behind the maker through 10 rooms...

If you love Mozart, classical music, or interested in history this museum is a good place to visit. We did not order tickets ahead of time and were pleasantly surprised that there were no lines. We visited in the late afternoon and had a great time. It was very informative and explained each room in Mozart's house. It gave the... More

We were there when it first opened so it wasn't crowded at all. We were able to move through the displays fairly easily. While interesting, it is pretty limited with some information about Mozart's childhood and family. If the lines were very long ( as they appeared to be later in the day) I don't think it would be worth... More

An ok place to visit but if you are in a rush you can get a pretty good idea of it from the street. Be aware that it is very crowded in the street and many tour groups stop to take a look. The place is important because it is where he was born and lived and it is not... More
