I loved going through Mozart's birthplace and learning more about him. I had already been through his home in Vienna and to be able to see where he was born and raised b4 going to Vienna, was fantastic. There are so many interesting pictures and artifacts here. You will get a good sense of what life was like during that... More

Go to Mozart's dancing house museum across the river if you want to see actual artifacts and an informative audio tour about Mozart's life. This house is fun to locate and see from the front facade outside, but paying to tour the house seemed like wasted time and money to me. There are few artifacts on display, and most of... More

It is more an empty house with pictures and notes on the walls. Very few objects really belonged to Mozart. A visit make sense only if you want to say "I was there" or if you are passionate about Mozart.

I visited this place since I bought 72 hour Salzburg card, which was really worthed. Really inspiring to see how Mozart was encouraged to hike on top of his career in really young age, showing us that age is not the limit.

This is a smaller museum - takes a little over an hour to enjoy fully. There is no audio guide but most of the exhibits have German and English text. This museum might be a bit of a challenge for young children since it requires a lot of reading to really learn about Mozart's life and family. There are many... More

It was cool to see Mozart's birthplace and they put a lot of money into this museum but I was a bit disappointed. Go with low expectations and you'll be pleasantly surprised. I thought the 10 Euro admission price was a bit high for this.

One of the highlights of visiting Salzburg is that it is the birthplace of Mozart. That said, the actual building is somewhat of a letdown. Nothing special, although it is nicely kept-up. It shows more how he grew up in a town and what that town was like rather than his own upbringing.

It was very interesting to see where he was born and how he started his first steps in his amazing carrier.

There were too many people to enjoy reading all the exhibits. There were unattended children touching (and adults) and running around and playing under pianos, making for an uncomfortable visit.
