Special for Mozart fans

This is not a great museum, but it is definitely interesting for Mozart fans. Since it is convenient to old town, it is worth a visit.

Not to be missed. The history and significance of this place can nor be measured. Plenty of historical artifacts and a well-planned museum makes this an imprtant place to visit.

When my wife and I visited we arrived at the same time as a Japanese tour party and so had difficulty seeing some of the rooms as they have a habit of completely blocking a small room while the guide explains what is in there. Not a lot in most of the rooms, mainly music scores and the like. The... More

It was neat to see where Mozart was born. It's easy to get too as well. The museum gives a good history or Mozart's life without being too lengthy. It has some of his things in there too which were neat to see. Doesn't take more than an hour at most, so worth seeing.

House provides information on 4 floors of this building. American couple ahead of me clearly did not relish having to climb so many stairs - even to the point of asking if the three hundred year old house had an elevator! Anyway there is a lot of information about W A Mozart, his parents and sister and his wife. Was... More

It was surprising how interesting this apartment museum was, we spent over an hour and a half going over the displays and artifacts of genius Mozart's early years there is even a music listening room as part of the tour. It was well worth the visit to Salzburg. There is so much to do and visit here that one day... More

Compared to the residence, the birthplace was a bit lacklustre. Nonetheless, it was still worth the visit to see the complete picture of his life and inspirations behind his music.

Was a bit hard to find the mozarts geburtshaus , considering we walked around salzburg from the train station..we took photos outside and just went up the stairs inside but didnot go in. I heard they donot allow pictures. Do check it once more as well. But if you are a big fan , you should definitely go in.
