Mozart's Birthplace

Mozarts Geburtshaus

The house in which Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on the January 27, 1756 is now one of the most frequently visited museums in the world.

In the newly designed permanent exhibition spread over three floors, visitors can learn about the details of Mozart's life and circumstances: how he grew up, when he began to make music, who his friends and patrons were, his relationship with his family, his passion for opera, and much more.

Alongside original portraits and documents, the exhibition also contains special rarities, such as mementos owned by Mozart, his childhood violin, the clavichord on which he composed several pieces including The Magic Flute, and what is probably the most famous portrait of Mozart, painted two years before his death by his brother-in-law, Joseph Lange.

Autographs, first editions and early prints of selected works bring the composer's musical development to life.

3rd floor

On the third floor of the former residence of the Mozart family, the individual family members are introduced.

This is also the location of the famous ‘birth room’, in which Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart came into the world on January 27, 1756. Soft light and background music imbue the room with a special aura.

2nd floor

The exhibition on the second floor primarily focuses on Mozart as a composer of operas. There are historic and contemporary set models and designs, as well as costumes, to be seen, and excerpts from his famous operas to be heard.

1st floor

The first floor is dedicated to everyday life at home and whilst travelling. 18th-century travel utensils, everyday items, original documents, and paintings tell of the Mozart family's circumstances in Salzburg and abroad. One room is furnished with original furniture from the ‘time of Mozart’, recreating the atmosphere of the age.
