Excellent time, we spent 2 hours there and even our 7 year old daughter came out delighted! The audio guide, adult version or before, is perfect for the whole family. It was very moving to see the writings of Mozart, and the animation on the magic flute is very successful. The shop presents good surprises such as the playmobil Mozart and beautiful music boxes. Mozart bath ducks, very funny to bring back as a gift, can be found everywhere in Vienna and are cheaper elsewhere.

Stepping on the same ground that Mozart has stepped on is a real blast, the atmosphere leads you to imagine what those nights and days of rehearsals, those nights and days of composition would be like... I recommend the visit.

Interesting. The voice guided tour provides much information, but each number can be long to provide be comprehensive. Allocate at least 45 minutes to an hour to take it all in

Very entertaining and informative. Also enjoyed by 2 year old and 8 year old

Mozarteum is wonderful museum. It was a high light of my trip to Vienna.
