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

If you are a fan of Mozart or are interested in the life of the famous composer then this attraction is worth visiting. You learn a lot of information about the early life of Mozart although I found that there were few artefacts and not a huge amount to see. Not really convinced it was worth the 10 euro admission...

I'm very glad I took a few hours out of my day to visit this museum while I was in Salzburg. I was impressed with the quality and quantity of the information and "artifacts" from Mozart's life. Throughout the rooms of this apartment where Mozart was born, there are probably hundreds of items documenting the composer's life and career. While... More

We took our time exploring the house and found the whole experience educational and informative. Not many items belonged to Mozart himself but you did get a very good sense of what life must have been at the time. They could have included more interactive activities however especially for teenagers. Also the place was overcrowded at times.

Walked from the bridge with lots of lovelocks, different stalls selling souvenirs.. Just continue to follow the crowd and you'll be able to see the famous birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart! I was with the Trafalgar tour and had a local tourguide who showed us around so looking for this place wasnt a problem. It was a special place especially... More

A friend finally convinced me to pay a (rather expensive) visit to Mozart's birthplace. Mozart had a very short life, died at age 35, so it is not entirely surprising that there are only a few rooms with a few interesting pictures and exhibits, but somehow the contents of these rooms do not seem to pay homage to such an...
