Inspirock Rating:
3.2/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web
Learn about the details of Mozart's childhood and his relationship with his family at Mozarts Geburtshaus. Exhibited instruments, documents, portraits, and family letters reveal his passionate interest in music--opera in particular. Start from the birth room on the third floor, where Mozart came into the world on January 27, 1756. Do not miss such rarities as his childhood violin or the clavichord upon which he composed "The Magic Flute." See the striking unfinished portrait of the composer that his brother-in-law painted two years before Mozart's death. Breathe in the atmosphere of the age on the first floor among original furniture from that time.

  • The exhibition has already pretty much in the years. Many facsimile are issued by poor quality. There is little original objects which have something to do with Mozart. Overall, the exhibition is not really gripping.

  • Interesting Mozart history and a real sense of his early life. Artifacts and displays. Takes about an hour and is informative. 
  • What a wonderful city! I have learned so much about Mozart, The Sound of Music etc, etc. our wonderful tour guide "Gaby" from our Gate 1 tour was the BEST! I have a new appreciation of Mozart. WOW. 
  • Loved this nice and cosy museum. It actually reminds me of the Anne Frank museum where the museum is old and unspoiled. Also educates you on the life of Mozart which I thought was pretty interesting.
  • Very interesting museum. It would be very nice to have some kind of tour guide or audio guide, but there are many explanations about Mozart's life in all the walls. You can see and read almost everything in 1 hour and a half or 2 hours. You should visit if you like music. It is not allowed to take pictures inside the museum.
  • It was a nice tour. Though little help from the staff other than to tell you not to take photos. Bit strange as the exhibits are in glass cabinets anyway! You need to download an app to take the tour, so maybe read that before going. BUT it's still nice to see, but don't get too excited by the final piano, it's just a copy which was a shame.
  • I enjoyed the tour in this historic place. Learned a lot about this great musician even though I don't know much about music. This place is a must to visit when in Salzburg. Highly recommend that you buy the Salzburg Card.
  • Have always loved Mozart growing up and being able to stand in here is priceless
