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.
