  • Some interesting stuff here good audio guide and a good way to spend a few hours looking at the various bits and pieces related to the Mozart family  more »
  • Pricey but worth it compared to the pricey, un-worth it birthplace. Much to learn about the boy-man. Audio guided. He lived sme 13 years here  more »
  • The audio guide was pretty good and all the displays had translations in English. However, it seemed like most of the exhibits were dedicated to his father, his sister, and his son. There really wasn'...  more »

  • It was pretty amazing to see the original instruments, music notes and letters of Mozart. It was interesting to see how tall he was. Everybody is given an audio guide, so it was very quiet, which was nice. No place for kids. I think they could have arranged the displays and audio guide little better. There were lots to read and listen. Some are just music, so could listen while you read the sign. Wished the numbers would say whether it's music or guide.
  • There are nothing too special about this place. They only display instruments from Mozart time if you are interested and Mozart music pieces. If you have Salzburg card and time you can enter it for free but I would not pay to enter this place.
  • A true piece and place of musical history 😀. To imagine that one of the greatest musical legends once walked the same rooms. Sit down for a few moments and let the history seep in.
  • The Wohnhaus has more artefacts on Mozart's family than his own life... but I like the Getburtshaus where more displays and descriptions on Mozart's path
  • It was ok.. not as big as i tought.. but overall is ok

Where to stay in Salzburg

There’s no better area to stay in the city where Mozart was born than the historical city center, a World Heritage Site. Salzburg's hub offers comfortable accommodations nestled between a rich array of sights. The Salzach River cuts directly through town, dividing the city into east and west. Look for accommodations in the Altstadt, tucked in between the river and the city’s mountain, Monchsberg. For budget-minded travelers, try a centrally located youth hostel or small hotel. If price isn’t an issue, splurge on Austrian luxury in an upscale hotel.
