At times I feel like Austria is Mozart obsessed so I was a little over it by the time I got here but it was OK

Just an amazing place! This city is beautiful. The fountains, museums, cathedrals, parks, etc. they all are so beautiful. I loved visiting with my family and just enjoying all the different places. Walking through the marketplace and tasting their pretzels was awesome!

The place is pretty interesting. The stairs and hallway is very small though. I get to read how Mozart was so fashionable and his spending habit was not good, spending too much for fashion more than he could afford

If you enjoy Mozart, I recommend visiting this house where he lived for approx. 8 years of his life. The house and museum are worth the small entry fee. Small and not to time consuming if your stay in Salzburg is limited.

We loved it but then we love Mozart! To see his tiny violin and personal items was really special. Very informative. It took longer to read everything because there was so much to learn , you could skim it if you wished but it deserves an hour.

You cannot visit Salzburg without also comming to this place. The display is probably most suite to for those with a Mozart affinity. For us with a mere average level of interest for the man keeping focus can be a challenge. Even so I am happy that I spent the time.

The descriptions in the audio tour were good, but overall the museum lacked some punch. Was definitely not a must see for us, but hey, you're in Salzburg, so maybe it is. good day to duck in and get out of the cold.

Mozart's birthplace gives a resume of his life and contains possessions of his family as well as the composer himself. There are also computers where you can listen and follow the score of his works and an area where you can sit and listen. This is definitely worth a visit for anyone who likes Mozart's music although it does cost... More

The exhibit seemed to be filled with more reproductions than authentic items related to Mozart. The information panels were... well... informative, but little else. Seeing the piano that Mozart played as a boy and walking through the rooms that were once filled with the sounds of his genius was pretty cool, though.
