Unobtrusive building where a genius was born. The town is crazy about his life and times. Small really not much to view inside. But once in a lifetime chance to hear his story

You find all the information that you would on Wikipedia,put written on the walls or in small tablets. Some antiques, some paintings, a few instruments and 1-2 rooms with antique furniture of the age (but not Mozart's stuff). Basically they use his name and the house of his birthplace as an attention grabber. There could have been so much more,... More

The house in which Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in 1756 is one of the most frequently visited museums in the world. A one- hour-long tour should be booked.

if you love music, you don't want to miss this. the museum tells you the story of the family of Mozart. it has manuscripts from Mozart's early compositions. you can also sit down and listen to the pieces while reading the sheet music along on the computer. it has everything in both German and English. isn't that great!

I really enjoyed the tour. I was there with a school trip from the USA. We seemed to be the only ones in there which was nice and made a nice tour. I enjoyed the history and learned things I didn't really know about Mozart. It took maybe an hour to see everything. The area where the museum is located... More

The kids and I could not leave fast enough. I am glad that we had the Salzburg card. I would not have wanted to pay for this, but I am not a Mozart fan. If one loved Mozart, this would be a nice visit. It gave a good idea of what the living conditions were like back then.

I learned a lot about Mozart's youth and character by visiting this house. There are many letters written by him on display.

Mozart was born in this house which is now a museum. Nearby is where he lived as an adult. I've been to places where he lived and performed in Prague and Czech Republic, but this was meaningful. They have done a nice job of preserving and displaying historical artifacts. I would like to go again.

Such an honour to walk through the apartment where Mozart was born and spent his formative years. Great pieces of history well persevered and well displayed. But why was there no music played n each room? That was the only criticism. Otherwise a must-see place of interest.

A visit to Mozart's Birthplace should be, if you do not have little kids, on your agenda. The place is right in the center of the old town so you might have a look at this as well. It is nice to stroll around the rooms and imagine how Mozart lived. There is not really much to see. What I... More
