NileGuide Expert tip:
Take advantage of the free audio guide, which offers helpful interpretation of the displays.
His family increasingly cramped in the two rooms they occupied over Getreidegasse – where Wolfgang Amadeus was born – Leopard Mozart moved his wife and two children to this house on Marktplatz in 1773. Now a museum dedicated to Mozart's life and work, the Mozart Wohnhaus showcases period instruments, including some used by the master himself, scores written in his hand, books, letters and portraits and other family memorabilia. The audio guide plays selections of his music from different periods of his life to illustrate the breadth of his work. At the end of the self-guided tour, an interactive display allows you to listen to various works and follow it, note by note, on a score. In addition, a theater presents a recording of one of his operas.
