Whilst in Salzburg I went to the museum out of interest as a musician. For me it was absolutely fascinating learning about the life of Mozart and his family. The museum is spread out over many floors and rooms and takes you through a lot of Mozart's life and also shows the designs of his operas. My personal favourite part... More

Situated on the busy street which is buzzing with tourists you can easily spot this place which is the most crowded spot where all the tourists would be taking pictures. It is next to the spar market. After relaxing coffee at M32, we walked on this street.

Again like the Mozarthaus in Vienna I would've liked to see more things that were of that Era. For example reproduction furniture. All there was was a kitchen we weren't allowed to enter. It would've been nice to see how they lived at that time. There's all sorts of paintings music sheets etc, everything a true Mozart fan would love,... More

I was hoping for a better look at his works. Not much to see unless you want to spend a great deal of time reading posters on the wall.

Nice place to visit and learn a little more about Mozart. Not sure if all ages will appreciate it. However definitely worth the exposure and visit. I was not disappointed.

I will start by saying I first visited here about 16 years ago. What a difference! Much more pleasant and bright. I really enjoyed the details printed with each exhibit. We also very much appreciated the affordability of the tour for our family of 5. Our 5, 7 , and 9 year old boys stayed very interested as we soaked... More

For lovers of Mozart, this is a must, but it is also a thought-provoking museum in that you get some idea of the odds which were stacked against the survival of babies born even to a family as reasonably well-off as Mozart's. Some of the magic rubs off on the visitor in the little notes and compositions written by the... More

Building where Mozart was born. Located in No. 9 Getreidegasse, is where Leopold Mozart's family lived from 1747 until 1773. The most famous exhibits include Mozart's childhood violin, his concert violin, his clavichord, the pianoforte, and portraits and correspondence of the Mozart family.

In the center of the old city.. definitely recommended for those who love Mozart. Personally I enjoyed it since i know very well the music of Mozart.... the children will appreciate it if they will understand the history of his music and right after the museum will taste the chocolate..!!!
