You cannot come to Salzburg without visiting the birthplace of Mozart. We enjoyed the visit here and found it atmospheric and informative but add an extra dimension and go a little walking tour. Plenty to see about Mozart.....the Residence, statue, church where his parents married, Mozart bridge, cafes and chocolate shop. We spent a rather rainy day making our own... More

OK, so whether or not you're a musician, I think this is a place you should visit when in Salzburg. It gives you a good amount of information about the composer, but it also lets you step back in time and see the space/rooms of a house back then. Now, the museum is small and, to my disappointment, you won't... More

Mozart's birthplace is a must-see for any classical music fan who visits Salzburg. It is small, and as other reviews mention, contains precious little to give the visitor an idea of how Mozart's family lived. Maybe the biggest problem, though, is the size of the crowds, given the relatively small size of the museum. After visiting a few of the... More

We arrived at Salzburg on a rainy day, and couldn't wait to get into an indoor attraction just to avoid the rain. The museum was actually the residence to Mozart when he was younger, though petite but it's rather informative. There are also free toilets which you can use inside the museum. However, what really attracted to us was the... More

It was a nice experience, but I preferred the house where he grew up. This was quite cold and grey. That said, Mozart is in the air all over Salzburg..

Boring and Old fashioned. To expensive(10euro) In 35 minutes we were outside. To small for the big group visitors. Not our piece of cake.

It is nice to visit one of the greatest people's place. My kids love music so much and it was a great experience for them.

Not that interesting if your not a huge Mozart fan. You get to know the story of Mozart and his family and also see some of his possessions. But for the price of more than 10 € per person I wasn't impressed. Luckily it was also included in the Salzburger card. But of course this is a must visit in... More

Having visited Mozart's Residence the previous day, we were not sure we would find this museum as interesting, but we were wrong. This museum was bigger than our expectation, spread on 3 floors. there was trivia about Mozart,his parents, his wife and children apart from some very interesting objects like Mozart's hair, his ring gifted by Empress, the letters he...
