Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart lived in this house from 1773-1778. His father died here on 28 May 1787. The museum displays original works by Mozart and items and furniture belonging to the Mozart family from the time they were living here. There are also exhibits displaying musical instruments belonging to Mozart, such as his clavichord and original hand written sheet music by the musical genius.
Mozart's residence is located on the northern side of the Salzach and it is a lot less famous than his birthhouse. I liked it much more though!
The Mozart family moved to this house in 1773 and this is where Mozart grew up and where he composed more than 150 of his works. He lived here until 1781.
The building was destroyed during World War Two, but carefully restored. The museum depicts everyday life of the family and also concetrates on the biographies of the family members. It shows furniture, memorabilia and a special audioroom, and there is a very nice movie about Mozart's life that you can watch in a little cinema room.
What I especially liked is that this Museum is also a bit critical, it for example also explains how Mozart's sister, a very talented girl, had to back down because her brother was hyped so much.
The museum gives a very good impression of Mozart's life and the people who surrounded him, I found it much more interesting than his birthplace.
You get an audioguide that leads you through the rooms and explains many details about the things you see and what the different rooms were used for.
The museum is open from 9am until 5.30pm every day, in July and August until 8pm.
It is wheelchair accessible.
Admission fee is 7€ for an adult, 3€ for youths, 2,50€ for children and 16,50€ for a family.
The house where Mozart was born on January 27, 1756 is one of the main attractions in Salzburg. I have to say that I find the pricing a bit much - it is a nice place, but although I love Mozart's music, I think this museum is a bit overrated.
The Mozart family lived in this house from 1747 until 1773. The third floor is a museum where you can see some personal things of Mozart, a violin that he possessed as a child, his piano and other memoriabilia, like for example letters written by him. The museum does not contain any furniture though, which disappointed me a little.
On the second floor you can see many different stage miniatures of Mozart's different operas. It is very interesting to see how the style of the stages changed over time and I really liked to look at them.
The museum is open from 9am until 5.30pm, and until 8pm in July and August.
Unfortunately it is not accessible by wheelchair.
Entrance fee is 7€ for adults, 3,50€ for youths, 2,50€ for children and 16,50€ for a family.
The main entrance is on Getreidegasse, but you can see the backside of the house from Universitätsplatz, and it is actually much prettier. That is because the frontside was renovated in the 19th century to get a classical look, while the backside remained in its original baroque style. My first photo shows the backside, the second photo shows the frontside.
At last I could see THE HOUSE where the Great Composer was born and lived.
It's really a sacred place for lots of people.
You can see lots of visitors there.
I found it even hard even to approach the house and to take a picture of it.
There were so many people around. I had to wait in turn like at a bus stop.
a typical old Salzburg house, a world famous museum.

Mozart's house, where he was raised. It's a nice yellow house in the center. Every person who come to Salzburg take a picture of this house! And I am not an exception.

Hagenauer House at Getreidegasse 9, in Salzburg is of course, better known as Mozart's House. Wolfgang A madeus Mozart was born in this house on January 27, 1756. The family lived in the house for a period of approximately 26 years and were family friends of the owner Johannes Hagenauer who was a wealthy toy dealer.
The house is a famous museum today and features the life of the great composer and his family on every floor. It is open every day till about 5.30pm and later in the summer high season (July and August).
In my opinion, this house is suited for the most hardcore of Mozart fans who know much about him already. The house is laid out with artifacts rather than a set up with furniture of how the living space would have looked. You travel through it with an audio guide. Included are old pianos, paintings of patrons, facsimiles of scores, and some letters. Some greater knowledge is required then to have a greater appreciation of who all of the characters in his life were, etc. Most interesting to me were a video at the end and the old pianos, but I don't think that these make the visit worth it.
On our walking tour, we of course walked past the "birthplace of Mozart"---I tried to get a shot of a small student peeking out a 3rd floor window, but he was too quick and shy--- therefore just the facade.
This is the birthplace Of the famous Salzburg composer Mozart. He was born and grew up in this his father's house. There is a second Mozart haus on the new side of the river where Mozart lived as an adult.
This is where the Mozart family lived from 1773-1787.
The exhibits show the life of the Mozart family and the history of the building.
Daily from 9am – 5.30pm
July, August from 9am – 8pm (last entrance 30 minutes before)
Closed during Mozart Week when concerts take place
