It is nice to see because of its historical value, but it's not that wow. Overall, you can't visit Salzburg without seeing Mozart's house.

We were glad that we visited at a quiet time because it could become quite claustrophobic. Fascinating exhibits made it all very interesting.

For the price it was ok....but unless you're really into Mozart I'd skip it. I wasn't overly impressed with it but it was nice that they didn't charge an arm and a leg.

The museum itself is well done and they pack a lot into the relatively small apartment. That said, the price for the ticket alone is far too high at a scathing 12 euros a person. Would recommend attending only if you have the Salzburg card and it's already free.

You'll be sad to have missed this tour if coming to Salzburg. This place is a Mozart lovers dream. The 3D remakes of his operas are truly devine.

We had been to the other location the other side of the river where Mozart lived and so we knew a lot of the history. This place was good but we enjoyed the other more. Well worth the effort if you have a Salzburg card especially.

You can't really come to Salzburg on a Ryanair City break without heading here. Agree with other reviewers that without the Mozart name it's an insight into how some upwardly mobile intelligent hard working and fun loving people had to live some centuries ago. Quite fascinating for all that. All those children who died in infancy, each one remembered and... More

It is a Nice place to visit. Lots of infrmations about Mozart and his family. I find it a little bit expensive, but it worths the Price. The informations are written only in english and german.

If you are going to be in Salzburg for a few days , we recommend buying a Salzburg card so you can see and do many things available for one cost. This was one of many places we went to using our card and so glad we did. The Birthplace of Mozart had so much information we learned about his... More

It was certainly interesting to see his birthplace and I was struck by his violin, piano and letter to his wife. Very cool.
