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

On our first visit to Salzburg we visited Mozart's birthplace in the heart of the town. The museum was interesting with several artefact's on display .The visit to the birthplace takes about an hour and a half . The Mozart family home however is more interesting with lots of family items on display including musical instruments and is a 15... More

Yes indeed, Salzburg is proud of her native son. His birthplace is also a museum. In many ways, this was a better insight into Mozart's boyhood and youthful musical upbringing than his residence. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here!

A good stop in old town on a rainy day. There are many exhibits related to the family life and history of young Mozart. Free on the Salzburg Card.

I liked learning more about Mozart and it helps you understand his music. Lots of old furniture and artifacts to discover. You need a couple of hours to take it in if you want to read all the information.

I don't know why these reviews say he didn't have a big house. Three floors in the 18th century was considered very wealthy and established. On top of that the family had a bath everyday during a time when they thought bathing more than once a week was unhealthy.... Regardless, I thought the house was I its original framing. They...

Don't be put off by the convenience store on the ground floor, the upper floors are fascinating and full of Mozart memorabilia. Well worth a visit, plan to spend at least two hours. There's lots of steps though and not many places to sit down.

Not a big place, but worth a trip we thought. We spent about an hour wandering through the rooms and learnt a decent amount about Mozart and his life. It would have been even better if we could have heard a bigger variety of his music. But we'd still recommend it. Great location in central Salzburg

I was looking forward to seeing this wonderful house. But I was disappointed. It consisted mainly of writing on the walls depicting Mozarts life, a few pictures & some animation. Not really a museum, but a history lecture 😞😞😞

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg and lived on the third floor of this pretty building from his birth in 1756 until 1773! Here, at this museum house, you will see Mozart's childhood violin, family portraits, lots of family history, and so much more all on three wonderful levels; so interesting and worth the entrance fee of 7 EUR...
