This is a typical old Austrian town house which has lotys of information about the life of Mozart and is well laid out and easy to get around if you are happy to climb up and down and lots of stairs.

You cannot go to Salzburg and not see the world's most famous prodigy's birth place. It was a very interesting tour and we learnt so much more about Austria's maestro and his influence on culture. I took the combined tour with the Mozart residence for only a little bit more money. The residence is just across the bridge over the... More

Gives a good insight into Mozart's life,but very busy and felt couldn't take all the information in. Found the Residence museum better. With the Salzburg card worth a visit especially if raining.

Although the museum here was wonderful and we learnt more than we had anticipated., the staff here were unbelievably rude and unhelpful. The worst in Austria.

Mozart's Birthplace is at the old part of Salzburg.....Quite a happening place with lots of tourists and souvenir shops. The lower part of the building is old architecture. but the upper part has been renovated and new. You cannot miss its bright yellow colour with white windows and a big national flag

As a huge Mozart fan I obviously found this very interesting although some of the exhibits relate to one of Mozart's son who went on to become a professional musician and composer. It was interesting to see the apartment in which the famous Salzburg son was born. Definitely worth a visit.

As a classical music fan, and a violin player myself I was most excited to visit one of the best compositors in history birthplace. But instead of being delighted with the visit I left plain disappointed. The exhibition was poorly displayed and the objects didn't have an explanation.

I was slightly disappointed with this place, Mozart residence is definitely much better. As a pianist who played many of Mozart's pieces and a fan of classical music, it's worth dropping by to visit.

Well..if you are visiting Salzburg, you cannot get away from going to the Old Town area. And plop in the middle of it is this cheerfully painted building with a courtyard in front where happy tourists mill around taking pictures. Its nice place to spend time and another good excuse to come to this great small city of Salzburg
