About
Mozarthaus Vienna presents the life and work of the musical genius Wolfgang Amadé Mozart, with particular emphasis on his Vienna years from 1781 to 1791, in a unique setting in the heart of Vienna close to St Stephan’s Cathedral. Domgasse 5 is the only one of Mozart’s apartments in Vienna that still exists today. The composer lived in Mozarthaus Vienna in grand style from 1784 to 1787. Nowhere else did he compose more music. Visitors can see not only the historical apartment but also an extensive presentation of major works by Mozart and of the times in which he lived. There is also a museum shop and the Concert Hall, which is a concert and event location.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

We left this feeling very disappointed. Aside from this being his former residence, there really wasn't much of Mozart here. Most of his possessions were long gone before the museum was even an idea with much of his life unknown and so instead they tried to flesh out his history with those around him. It's an interesting place to walk through, but they don't really know how each room was used, or what his furniture looked like and so while they try to make it interesting and engaging, there isn't very much to look at and is mostly a lot of sign reading/listening if you paid for the guide. It was very expensive for the minimal experience and enjoyment we got from it.

We were happy when we finally found this building, the Mozarhaus, where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart rented a whole floor and lived with his family and household from 1784 to 1787. It is in the Domgasse, very close to the apsis of the Stephansdom.
The museum was opened in 2006 and occupies three floors of the building originating from the XVII. century. Our visit began on the upper floor where we were presented with the look and feel of Vienna in Mozart's time. We then descended to the next floor, dedicated to Mozart's music. The third, lowest floor that we visited was the apartment that the composer rented.
We saw a plethora of interesting paintings and other artefacts on all three floors, for example, the Masonic documents and a fantastic, very expansive suite tailored for Mozart. The accompanying facts on the panels and on the audio guide were also exciting. For example, we learned the monthly rent for this apartment was very expensive and equalled the rent for Mozart's Salzburg apartment for a whole year.
We enjoyed this visit very much and bought a couple of memorabilia in the souvenir shop! The only setback was the fact that we could not take photos...

It was fascinating to walk through Mozart's house, although the ticket desk was fairly unwelcoming. Some of the rooms were brilliant, but others seemed to wander off-topic. Fortunately with own-language self-guide consoles we could view at our own pace. The staff member handing back bags at the bag check desk was downright surly!

We took this tour because we wanted to find out more about Mozart and his life in Vienna, but found that there is way too much information in the audio guide. This is in spite of the fact that we are fans.

As can be expected, our teen son was bored almost from the beginning; and I was lost a quarter way through.

Perhaps the attraction can have different levels of interest - and tailor the audio guide accordingly

If you’re a really classic music or Mozart fan it’s interesting maybe. Mostly picture commented by audio guides. For a tourist like us with small kids not so much to see. But anyway. It’s a must if you stay in Vienna.

How to make your visitors feel unwelcome.

I visited Figaro Haus Museum in on a quiet day in January 2002 and I must say the desk staff were some of the most unfriendly and unhelpful I have come across. Our group of 20 included mature age music lovers and students in their early 20's all well behaved and keen to complete their assigned questions for this musuem. Unfortunately we were made to fell most unwelcome. Shadowed is the word that comes to mind. We were not provided with a written English guide. The set up was reasonable good. The beautiful Marble vestibule was the highlight for me.

Here's the true deal about Mozart Haus. I am a huge Mozart fan. I have been reading these reviews for months before my trip to Vienna last month. I have seen such a variety of impressions here and I will say the same here as my reviews about his museums in Salzburg. If you have no interest in Mozart, you shouldn't go here. That's it. It is not a Vienna "must" if you have no interest in the man, because it will not affect you. There is plenty of other culture in Vienna to explore that will truly satisfy you. If you love his music, but have no interest in the man himself or his life - this also will not be of much interest to you, because it's a museum that focuses on his life and not just his music. If you are a Mozart fan in all aspects, this will truly stun you. To walk in his actual apartment and realize that some of his finest music that you love so much was written and conceived in those very rooms, is an experience of a lifetime. True, the museum is based around imagining what the rooms were used for. There is no surviving original furniture here. But furniture is not what makes it special. It is the immensity of all that happened in those rooms that makes it magical. Here you will see some amazing things such as his death mask, coroner report, obituary and copy of his estate. Personal items such as his snuff box were on display as well as original tickets and fliers to his concerts, copies of his sheet music and letters, and plenty of information about all those who lived and worked with him. If you are not interested in Mozart, this museum will not interest you in the slightest. If you will be disappointed that there are not very many authentic pieces of his life here, don't come. There are not incredible amounts of his possessions. But there are some things that are so invaluable and so impressive, if you are a Mozart fan you will find value in every square inch of it. Especially the silent energy of those real life rooms where he lived, breathed, and conceived his work. It is not to be missed.

...to the life of Mozart, especially his time living in this flat. Not sure why this had received so many negative reviews: it has plenty of information and does not claim to be anything more than a celebration of his life and works based in an apartment in which he lived. Enjoyable for an hour or so I thought.

Generally speaking,I don't like to write bad reviews, but in this case I think it's absolutely necessary.
This place is a big waste of money! 11 euros to visit an empty three floors house. No memorabilia at all and they are not even sure about how the house looked like when Mozart lived there.
My personal advice is to avoid this place and to save your money for more interesting experiences in Vienna.
