Mozart’s Residence is accessible to wheelchairs via the Theatergasse entrance. Please ask at our cash desk for support.
Mozart’s Residence was reconstructed after being partly destroyed during World War II and was re-opened to the public in 1996. The biographies of the family members and the authentic impressions of everyday family life fill the house with their spirit to this day and allow visitors to experience Mozart anew. In the historic Dancing Masters’s Hall Mozart’s original instruments are on display.
Due to the preparation of the Leopold Mozart exhibition, the Mozart Residence is closed until April 4th, 2019!

Mozart Audio-Visual Collection
The Audio-Visual Collection is open to the general public free of charge (however no loans are permitted). It was created for the use by scholars, students, Mozart enthusiasts as well as school groups, singers, instrumentalists, directors and conductors. The large viewing screen may also be used by groups if booked in advance.
Opened in 1991 in the Mozart Residence, the Mozart Audio-Visual Collection is the largest special archive of audio and visual recordings relating to the life and works of Mozart. The collection houses 26,000 sound recordings (the oldest dates back to 1889) and 3,300 video productions. It is possible to listen to recordings or view films directly at the archive. For some individual works more than 100 different interpretations are available. An additional 16,000 recordings are documented in the collection’s online database. The collection itself includes numerous performances of works, rehearsal excerpts, documentary films, motion pictures, plays and children’s films.

Since the middle of the nineteenth century the Mozarteum Foundation’s most valuable holdings have been letters and documents as well as autograph scores relating to the Mozart family.
The basement of the building in which the Mozart family lived houses the vault containing these autograph treasures as well as an exhibition space that may be visited as part of special guided tours.
The library holds more than half of all known documents associated with the family, including around 200 of Mozart’s original letters (he himself is the main contributor to 150 of these and one of multiple contributors in the case of the other fifty), around 300 letters written by his father Leopold and more than 100 autograph music manuscripts, most of them sketches and drafts of Mozart’s works in addition to autographs in the hand of Franz Xaver Wolfgang Mozart. The collection also includes scores, letters and other documents relating to numerous other figures from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries. We are working hard to catalogue these holdings as part of various ongoing projects.

300. Birth anniversary of Leopold Mozart
Leopold Mozart (1719 – 1787): Musician – Manager – Man
April 5, 2019 – February 9, 2020 at the Mozart Residence
Who really was Leopold Mozart?
This question is explored in the exhibition honoring the occasion of his 300th birthday. Leopold Mozart was no doubt one of the most interesting and versatile musical personalities of his time: productive composer, longtime court musician and violinist, deputy Kapellmeister, skilled music engraver, music copyist, successful pedagogue, clever teacher and promoter of his gifted children, respected author and scholar, attentive observer, excellent correspondent, loving husband, caring and sometimes lecturing father, gregarious host, educated reader, art collector, passionate visitor of theater and opera, intelligent networker, meticulous organizer, canny tour and concert manager, devout Catholic, Freemason, provocative subject, free thinker, man of the Enlightenment, supporter of musicians’ widows.
All of these, in part still little-known components of the eventful life of Leopold Mozart, are traced in the exhibition that presents rare original letters and music autographs, printed books and documents, in addition to engravings and portraits.
