Even if you're not a Mozart fanatic, his birthplace on the busy pedestrian shopping street Getreidegasse is worth a visit. At this museum, you'll see his adorable childhood violin, his clavichord, and rooms decorated to reflect a bourgeois apartment in the Salzburg of the time. The rooms are themed around Mozart's relationship to the University of Salzburg, local families, and the church. Upstairs are dioramas and miniature stages that provide an introduction to the Mozart family and tell the story of Mozart's life in the theater. There's also a new exhibit on the daily life of a wunderkind. Those more interested in Mozart's music may prefer to save the €10 entrance fee and put it toward one of the many Mozart concerts in town instead.
