Mozarthaus

Pictures were not allowed to be taken inside, which is a bummer on my end for blogging.  Mozart’s family only lived in this apartment for three years  during the seventeenth century and it was the most expensive living quarters he had ever owned.  For ten Euro to get into the building, the museum was fairly small.  It only contained replicas – nothing was original. I would not return if I ever visit Vienna again.

The Residence of a Musical Genius

Mozarthaus is located at Domgasse 5, the very place where Mozart lived from 1784 to 1787. The house has been carefully preserved and transformed into a museum, allowing visitors to walk in the footsteps of Mozart and gain insights into his life and creative process. As you step through the doors of Mozarthaus, you are transported back in time to the bustling world of late 18th-century Vienna, where Mozart’s talent and brilliance were nurtured.

The exhibitions delve into the vibrant artistic scene of the city, the influential figures who shaped Vienna’s musical landscape, and the societal changes that impacted Mozart’s career.
