(1,900+ reviews on the web)
History Museum
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.

  • It's interesting and worth the visit to see the personal effects of the man and his immediate family. I especially enjoyed the letters, music sheets and seeing two of his pianos. The self guided tour app is convenient. Three stars because its historically significant and well put together, but it is modest, a bit expensive (€12), and small/short.
  • It is a very interesting visit to Mozart's birth house. There are panels in German and English explaining the use of each room and the story of the family. The place has some original furniture and paintings from Mozart's time and, of course, has a bookstore/souvenir shop right at the end. Among some of the most interesting things they have, I would mention the letters Mozart wrote to several people (sister, father, friends, etc) which have been transcribed and translated for the visitors to understand. The shop sells a book containing them. There are 3 houses in Salzburg that are connected to Mozart or Mozart's family. If you are planning on visiting any, I would recommend this one, for it is the one that houses the most original items and where Mozart grew up.
  • We had to choose among the sight-seeings and museums of Salzburg due to budget. Visiting the birthplace of Mozart was one of the best choices we could make. The house has two levels in which many portraits and writings have been preserved. Detailed information was provided about the story of the family and Mozart himself and it was given in such a nice way. In most of the museums people usually get bored after a period of time especially when they to read label after label but in this case the opposite occurred. The more we stayed the more we wanted to know. It is a must-see if you are visiting Salzburg and if you have time visit the shop; you can find very beautiful postcards (not the usual touristic ones but really nice photos of the city).
  • A place you should go for sure. Tour is shorter than I expected and I thought the no photos rule was a bit over top. One of the few places with this rule, understand no flash, but in the modern era I want to show my friends pics.
  • Very interesting place to visit considering it is the building Mozart was born in. There is plenty of displays, photos, and written explanations. A must visit when visiting Salzburg.
