This museum gives much insight into Mozart's life. We truly enjoyed it. Our teens enjoyed it too. It is nice to see Mozart's house along with articles from his life with a story about his life, the life of his parents and sister. It also gave information about his children.

This is the residence of Mozart when he was in Salzurg. The exhibition is well displayed. They have also digitised some of the important manuscripts which would allow you to view online.

I enjoyed my visit here, the video guide was well done and the museum was nice! I really liked how it was more spacious and I could definitely take my time.

Mozart’s second and last home (Wohnhaus) in Salzburg, also nicknamed “The Dancing Master’s” house, is where he spent a decade before residing in Vienna for the last two years of his life. There was lots of information, but an inordinate amount of it didn’t focus on what we expected or what we really wanted to know about Mozart.

Instead of being exclusively devoted to Mozart himself, many of the exhibits and a good deal of the documentation related to his father, his sister, and some of his personal and professional friends, including the composer Gluck whom he greatly admired. Although there was coverage of Mozart’s career achievements, it was spread out in bits and pieces that at times we had trouble reading or couldn’t read at all. The layout was the culprit here. The walls were appropriately covered with portraits and other period paintings with side-by-side explanatory comments, but at times the bulky glass cases in front of the walls didn’t allow any room to get close enough to decipher either the German or the English print. Even if our whole body covered the glass, we still wouldn’t have been able to make out the letters. And even the writing within the glass cases was tough to read because of annoying little glaring beads of light attached underneath the front of the cases.

On the plus side, there were some rooms solely about Mozart. There was a screen presentation of Mozart’s extensive travels in Europe initiated by his father, journeys that Leopold Mozart was convinced were essential to enlighten and humanize his prodigy son. In another room, We were quite interested in the audio's guides explanation of how Leopold helped to immerse Mozart in playing music. He greatly helped to promote Mozart and nurture his talented son.

The last room had extensive information about how the “Mozart name” has been used for profit, and the one before it showed fraudulent portraits of Mozart throughout the years. Overall, this museum was a disappointment.

Worth a visit.good audio guide lots of interesting things to see there.Not being very knowledgeable about Mozart it was interesting to learn a lot about him and his family. Buy a Saltzburg card, great value for money, gets you in to most places for free and jump the queue.
