We enjoyed this more than the Birthplace museum. The audio guide certainly helps you as you wander around - some interesting aspects and certainly worth visiting if you're in the area, with an hour or so to spare and with a Salzburg Card in your back pocket.

I found this fascinating as I discovered so much about Mozart and his family that I didn't know. It was lovely to see and listen to the instruments of the time and to learn about his family history. There are several portraits of his father and sister and interesting commentaries to listen to. Well worth a visit.

His full name is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, he began playing music at a very early age! He had a sister that mostly none talked about and a father who was quite competitive. The furnishings and art work in the museum are of the family collections. Some are portraits, some still life, others of scenery. Seeing his writing and musical instruments... More

I found this museum to be very uninteresting, despite my enjoyment of museums AND Mozart. After entering, a sign prompted me to download all of the descriptions and background information which I began reading as we started to walk through the museum. The information was actually quite interesting, but I could have stayed home and read it on my iPhone.... More

Ticket are affordable, place is not huge, but is very instructive. They do have several pretty old instruments very well maintained. As usual, your way out includes a forced pass to the gift shop

Had to go in as everything in Salzburg seems to evolve around Mozart and Sounds of Music. Doesn't stir much interest in me as I am not into classical music...... Probably a music buff might differ in opinion

My husband is a music buff and he was very disappointed - the museum didnt tell any story, didnt bring anything to life about his music. It just presented artefacts and letters - which is fine if that is what you are expecting. If you are going for music history, this is not the place for you. Replica piano was... More

The museum is well organized and the audio service in multiple languages is great. You should go there.
