27 Jan-31 Dec 2006. The building at Domgasse 5, where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart lived in style on the first floor from 1784 to 1787, has now become a museum, with four floors of exhibitions dedicated to Mozarts life and times. The Wien Museum has adapted the first-floor apartment, formerly known as the Figarohaus after the opera Le Nozze di Figaro that was composed there, using interactive exhibits and selected time pieces of period furniture. The third floor has displays focussing on Mozarts life in Vienna: his friends and supporters, his involvement with the Freemasons, his passion for games and the places where he lived and performed. Mozarts operatic works are featured in the audio installation and exhibition on the second floor, while the ground floor houses a museum shop and caf. The lower ground floor has a conference/concert space and a learning centre is to be installed there this summer. The Mozarthaus is the only one of the great composers homes still in existence. A museum guide in five languages is available for 12. Admission 9, concessions 7, groups 6. Ticket price includes an audio guide. Daily 10.00-20.00.
