The place is very interesting. It is a small 3 floor house. There are a lot of family pictures and portraits, Mozart notes, his instruments.

I found that this one was more interesting than the Mozart Residence. Some of the explainations are right on the wall in large print so it was quite easy to follow. Personal opinion, i just found it slightly better than the audioguide at the Residence. A lot of info of his father as well at this museum. I thought this... More

No where near as interesting as the second house on the other side of the river. If you are going to visit, buy a joint ticket.

When I was last in Salzburg, I didn't have time to visit this museum so I made sure that it was a "must see" on this trip. Mozart is easily my favourite composer so I was very interested in the museum. We were there in August so it was quite busy and extremely warm inside (crowds and no air-conditioning). There... More

We didn't actually have time to visit the inside of Mozarts birthplace but we went by and took some photos. It's the kind of attraction you do just so you can say "been there, done that". Unless you have a strong interest in Mozart.

Well rounded historical presentation of the life, music and zeitgeist of Mozart and his life. Instruments, manuscripts, scores, clothing, paintings, furnishings, even a multimedia room for millenials. You name it, they've got it. The museum's layout is cool too, strolling through a winding multilevel 18th century townhouse. Definitely worth my 10€ admission price. BTW, don't be fooled by the crowds... More

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...
