Mozarthaus Vienna Reviews
Interesting Visit in Vienna Feb 15, 2009
When visiting Vienna, don’t miss this museum, housed in a building where Mozart lived with his wife and children from 1784 to 1787. Of the eleven homes that Mozart occupied in Vienna, it is the only one that still remains today. It is also where he was supposed to have been happiest. The interesting visit gives a lot of insight about Mozart and his life.
Among other works, he composed “The Marriage of Figaro” while living here.
When you enter the museum you are given an audio guide which has tons of information about everything that you are seeing. Each exhibit has a number, and if you press the number on the audio guide you get extensive information about the exhibits. There’s no extra cost for this and it’s extremely helpful and informative.
Aside from the rooms that the Mozart family occupied, the museum also gives a lot of insight int Mozart’s life and times. We started the tour on the third floor of the building where there is an exhibit “Vienna in the Era of Mozart” which is about how he lived, where he performed, who his friends were, Viennese society, his gambling and his involvement with the Freemasons. After that floor, we went down a level to an exhibit called “Mozart’s Magical World” about his operas, and finally to the ground floor and the Mozart Apartments, in addition to showing you the home this exhibit area also gives information about Mozart, his wife Constanze, their son Carl Thomas and how they lived.
Admission to Mozarthaus Vienna costs 9 Euros, children up to 14 years pay 3 Euros and there are also special rates for groups, families, etc.
