The audioguide is filled with a lot of music which takes up some extra time. I found myself skipping a lot of it but I think for some people it would be really interesting to hear examples of Mozart's work. Most of the collection is books and music scores with a smattering of paintings and musical instruments. I would suggest... More

For some people this is like a place of pilgrimage as this is the residence of the maestro of western music and people to this day workship him and his work.

Rebuilt after the war, not well planned and if you want to know about Mozart you can read about it elsewhere. His birth place was better. If I did not have the Salzburg card I would have sjipped this place.

For those on a pilgrimage, this and the Mozart Birth Place are a must. If you know a good bit about Mozart, you may not learn much new in either place.

As a professional musician I found this museum particularly informative. I had previously been to the Birthplace but had not been here before. Finding the Residence so good I presumed that the birthplace museum would have been upgraded to a similar 'museum' standard so visited there again being extremely disappointed. The audio guide here at the Residence was excellent.

It's worth doing a walk through just to say that you were there. So interesting things to see regarding his birth-home. Be sure to visit his home across the river as it offers a little more than this house. Still, I enjoyed it and would recommend a visit.

A lot to see and lots of detail on the audio guide. We weren't sure how much was authentic given how badly it was bombed in the war, but it was worth seeing.

We visited both the Birthplace and Residence museums. Both were small buildings and contained various instruments, photos, and information on the composer's life and family. Pros: - gave insight into the composer's personal life and humour (my favorite is the letter he wrote to Constanze - displayed in the Birthplace) - interesting to see his instruments Cons: - being a...

Total waste of time. No flow to the exhibits and completely boring! Better of going to his birthplace!
