“Not worth the Money.”
Reviewed 15 May 2012

We went to Mozart's Apartment expecting to see a furnished beautiful house, and this place was far from that. Not only was there not a single piece of furniture inside, but all of the artifacts were copies. The place was more like a museum with pictures of his music pages and pictures of people, however all of them were copies of originals that were located in different museums around the world and many of the picture seemed to have little reference to Mozart. There is a free audio guide that comes with the tour that explains a lot about his life, but for 10 Euro when you are inside for about 15 minutes it is not worth it. Just watch the history channel. Unless your a die heart Mozart fan spend your time somewhere else in Vienna as there are so many beautiful places.

“I've been there!!”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

It was my first time in Salzburg and I don't know when [and if] I would be back. So I thought of going inside the museum to experience it. Not too fancy; could be better if there were more "old Mozart stuff" in there. BUT what I saw was good enough. Most memorable for me was the replica of the old living room where they had one of Mozart's clavichord and concert attire in there. There's another clavichord in one of the hallways. There's also a semi-enclosed room where you can just sit and listen to Mozart's music ~ the acoustic is awesome! When I walked out of the building, I felt proud 'coz "I've been there!!".

“Important location”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

If you are a Mozart fan, you will profit the place, pay attention in few objects, but it will be useless read the presentation or listen the music in poor speakers.

“Inspiring museum”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

This house is full of contemporary material (letters, manuscript pages, paintings, jewellery such as signets) collected during Mozart's lifetime. Arranged on several floors, it is a must for any fan of Mozart's sublime music. Easily covered in an hour. Entrance was free on the Sunday that I visited.

“Could be better, but still enjoyable”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

The best part of the museum is simply being where Mozart was born. I prefer my house museums to be furnished like houses, and this one is not. But, there are still some really cool things to see in there, including a violin that Mozart played as a child. The cafe was pretty expensive, but very yummy. The menus are all in German, but the waitress was willing to help us puzzle it out.
