What used to be a rather homely house museum has recently been transformed into a state-of-the-art interactive homage to Mozart's Vienna. The curators have left the composer's first-floor apartment, where he lived for two and a half years and wrote The Marriage of Figaro, relatively empty, because they can only guess at each room's original function. But they have stocked the upper floors with portraits of Mozart's patrician sponsors, silhouettes of the original cast of Figaro, and miniature stage sets. Most fun is a digital tableau of 18th-century figures as translucent as ghosts, promenading across the Graben and then vanishing into their town houses when a faux dusk falls.

Open daily from 10 am to 7 pm.
