Nice to be able to say i saw that, but other than that, not much to say. had to dodge aggressive panhandlers and seas of tourists.

I was pretty much surprised to see a food store on the first floor. I have nothing against food stores, just very strange that they need one in this special building. Crowds of tourists didn't help also. Very overrated town overall.

There is one thing that really annoyed me, the fact you can't take photos either here or in the other Mozart house is what gives this place a lower grade. I did thoroughly enjoy this place though and Salzburg is one of my favourite cities in Europe! so clean and majestic.

Mozart is the most famous son of Salzburg and therefore he is omnipresent in the city. This museum is in the house he was born and has lots of material of good quality about him. Also quite good information about the material exposed. The only comment I would have is that a small part of the texts have no English... More

I t was good to see how Mozart was born... The house was so cold in these days so I can't imagine at those years... poor Mozart... in any case the few relics are good to see and the modern aspect of his life is worth a visit...

Was much better than I anticipated and was an interesting glimpse into Mozart's family life with information and artefacts about his family and his life in Salzburg and in this house where he was born.

WE thought it would be good to have lunch here and we were not disappointed. The staff were excellent and helped us with the pronunciation of the very German menu. The freshly made soup and cake were excellent and the sense of history were also there. In all a great place to have an inexpensive lunch stop!

This was one of the very few museums that could keep my 3rd grader interested. It provided free wifi and app guide.

Even for someone who isn't a great classical music fan, this is a must see. Noticeable by crowds outside blocking the street for photo opportunities, I spent just under an hour here. Die hard classical music fans would spend longer but I just wanted to get a flavour of his life and music. No photos were allowed inside and they... More
