Stiftung Mozarteum Salzburg in Salzburg Stadt, Salzburg Stadt


The Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg owns two of Salzburg's most important historic sites: the house in which Mozart was born and the house in which he resided with his
family as a child.


Mozarts Birthplace

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. No other place makes the person behind the artist Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his music as palpable as his birthplace.

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.

Mozart Residence

Mozart’s Residence was reconstructed after being destroyed during World War II and was opened to the public in 1996. The biographies of the family members and the authentic impressions of everyday family life fill the house to this day with their spirit and allow visitors to experience Mozart anew. The building, largely destroyed during World War II, was faithfully reconstructed and opened to the public as a second Mozart museum in 1996.

With its eight rooms, the house provided the family with a larger living quarters from 1773 onwards. Wolfgang Amadeus lived here until early 1781, when he left the city for good to live in Vienna.

In the spacious rooms, original documents and portraits document the history of the house, of Mozart's compositions during his Salzburg years, and of the social environment of the Mozart family. Special attractions include Mozart's original fortepiano and the famous family portrait in the "Dance-Master's Salon".

Separate areas are dedicated to topics such as the women in Mozart's life, espesially his sister Nannerl, and to 'Bölzlschießen', a popular pastime among the Mozarts, as well as to the family's extensive travels. An audio-visual display about Mozart's life and his Salzburg surroundings completes the tour of the museum.

Mozart’s Residence also holds varying special exhibitions, concerts, and lectures. From Jan 26 to April 14, valuable international loans of Mozart portraits will be on display, as well as pictures from the Foundation's own collection, presenting a fascinating juxtaposition of diverse historical portraits of Mozart, never before exhibited in this form.
