Mozart House
One of Mozart's ancestors became a citizen of Augsburg as early as 1643. Leopold Mozart - Wolfgang Amadeus's father, music teacher and mentor who discovered his son's musical genius - was born here in 1719 in the Mozart House, an original 17th century artisan's house. Numerous buildings, monuments and memorial plaques in Augsburg recall the Mozarts, a family of architects, sculptors and bookbinders. The Mozart House, which was redesigned in 2006, has an exhibition of paintings, engravings and drawings relating to the Mozart family, as well as original period instruments such as an Andreas Stein fortepiano played by Leopold and Wolfgang Amadeus. The nearby Little Golden Hall is a reminder of the school attended by Leopold and his son. Closed on Mondays.
Maximilian Museum
The Maximilian Museum is in the heart of Augsburg between the town hall and St. Anna's Church. It is Augsburg's most important showcase for art pertaining to the city and its history. On display are pieces by Augsburg gold- and silversmiths (the quality of whose work is prized throughout Europe), medieval stone monuments, gothic furniture, Renaissance and baroque sculptures, porcelain and faience, musical instruments, clocks and scientific instruments. Original fountain bronzes by Adriaen de Vries and Hubert Gerhard are among the highlights. Displayed in the inner courtyard are the original sculptures for Augsburg’s three magnificent fountains - Augustus, Merkur and Hercules - as well as the three graces of the Hercules fountain and the Siegelhaus eagle. Closed on Mondays.
Roman Museum
The Roman Museum in Augsburg has been located in the twin-aisled hall church of the former Dominican Abbey of St. Magdalena since 1966. On display are monuments and finds from Augusta Vindelicum, the Roman provincial capital, and from around the region. Exhibits range in date from prehistoric times to the early Christian period and the early Middle Ages. There are votive finds with bronze cutlery and gold beakers from the Bronze Age, the inventory of one of the oldest wagon graves in central Europe dating from the Hallstatt era and an extensive collection of stone monuments depicting everyday life in Roman times. Closed on Mondays. Guided tours on request.
Swabian Architecture Museum
Opened in 1995, the Swabian Architecture Museum is a branch of the Architecture Museum of the Munich University of Technology, set in the building where the Buchegger architect family once lived and worked. The historical rooms of this detached two-storey villa with extensive gardens (1900) house temporary exhibitions on important examples of architecture in Swabia and other German regions. Highlights include a collection of approx. 1,000 European prints dating from the 16th to 18th centuries and the former library of Augsburg's planning department with reference works and magazines on art and architecture from the 19th century to early 20th century. Closed on Mondays.
Fuggerei Museum
The Augsburg Fuggerei, a "town within a town" and the oldest social housing project in Europe, was founded in 1521 by Jakob Fugger "the Rich". Comprising approx. 60 houses, it provided a home for around 106 poor but honest families. The Fuggerei Museum is in the only one of the houses still preserved in its original state. The exhibition illustrates the history of the Fugger family and includes a documentary, panels with text and images, a range of objects and three living rooms with original 17th and 18th century furniture. Open all year round.
