“Mozart's Birthplace (Mozart Gerburtshaus) Is Much Better”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Very happy we went to the Mozart Dinner Concert and toured his Birth Place first. If this had been our first we might have not gone to the other two. The home is located across the river from the old town and easy to find. The audio tour is a must if you do not know the local language. Mostly portraits and no pictures allowed.

“The movie is the best part”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

This is an unusual museum, it seems most of the attention is given to the debate over the authenticity of pictures and portraits of the famous man. This must be of importance here in Salzburg, perhaps not-so-much to us outsiders.
BUT! The short film at the beginning of the displays is worth the ticket price, in my opinion. This well-done synopsis of the life of Mozart was interesting, informative, and concise, and we learned allot. The other interesting piece of information is to be found in the last room before exiting the museum ~ look for the piece on what the marketing value of the Mozart image is worth! Amazing!

This tiny museum contained a few musical instruments and the rest were pictures of Mozart, some believed to be actual portraits, others not. They show the composer at various ages but, for the most part, they all look alike. We were in and out of there in ten minutes. Not worth the price of admission!

“Limited interest”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

This is not the museum to come to if you want an introduction to the life and music of Mozart or if you would like a recreation of the rooms in which he would have lived. The exhibit has already been well described by recent reviewers and, while we found the audio guide informative, its focus was too narrow. The final room was full of interactive displays, which my son greatly enjoyed and which added extra interest, but I don't feel that the museum as a whole warranted the entrance fee.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

This place is mostly paintings and other images of people that might or might not be Mozart. I got the audio guide, which gave rather long explanations of most of the stuff in this museum. I didn't find it all that interesting. You can pick up a few things about Mozart, but not what I expected. Without the audio guide and without being able to read the language, I'd have had no idea what I was looking at. We want here because our guidebook recommended it, but I wish we'd tired his birthplace instead. No pictures can be taken inside.
