During our short visit to Salzburg, we decide to skip also to WA Mozart Residence. This is a museum where one can see a few portraits of the famous composer and his family, a few instruments and can learn some interesting details of his life using audio guide included in the ticket price.
A gift shop is in the basement.
There is also a photo automat where you can create your own postcard with Mozart’s motives.
For visitors arriving with car, using nearby Mirabell parking (payment) is an option.

This was a little disappointing after all it was where W A Mozart lived and the audio tour seemed to concentrate more on Mozart's father Leopold rather than the man himself. There were not too many artifacts except for paintings of Mozart and the family. It did not take too long to walk round even with listening to the full audio with excerpts of the more famous pieces.

The museum gives a very good account of the life of Mozart. The "tour" comes with a hand-held recorder which gives excellent account of the place (room by room) in the language we are comfortable with. We now have a much better understanding of this famous composer.

There are a few nice things about this museum. There are several period instruments (mostly replicas) to admire and some nice portraits of Mozart, his family, and other important contemporaries. The informative audio guide includes many clips of Mozart's famous pieces, and there are some moderately interesting video clips. But mostly we were disappointed. It is tiny and lacks personal items from Mozart's life. Much of the information is actually about Leopold Mozart, and the entire tour, listening to most of the audio, watching most of the video clips, and reading many of the displays, took less than an hour. Definitely not worth the 10 Euro it cost. Save your money and go to a concert instead.

There is really nothing particular to Mozart in this museum, except for a few pieces of musical instrument. They could have called this the Mozart portrait museum as the rest of the exhibits focuses on portraits of him and the authenticity thereof. If you're a die-hard fan you may want to come just to see a couple of famous portraits of him and his family (by della Croce and Kraft).
The museum shows a looping documentary video, and although good, really has nothing to do with the residence itself.
