The Schubert Museum is located in the house where the famous composer Franz Schubert was born in 1797. It was originally used by his father as a school with the family's living quarters upstairs.
If like many tourists you have spent several days immersed in Gothic and Baroque architecture, the starkness and austerity of Schubert's birthplace will take you by surprise. The house/museum appears to be in its original condition with clean plain lines inside and out. It houses many artifacts connected with Schubert including his manuscripts, musical scores, instruments, his guitar and other day to day living items thought to be used by Schubert.
Part of the museum is also given over to Adalbert Stifter who was a talented writer during Schubert's life. Schubert's music is played every Friday at 7:30pm. To attend these sessions you will need to book and buy a ticket.
There is an admission fee but it is relatively small, and even free on Sundays for the permanent exhibition.
