  • To look at a different angle to Salzburg. But two two 20 euros is a lot of money. The Museum is mediocre but nice.

  • I entered this museum with paying for entrance fee €3.6 around 10pm, because a member of staff in information counter told me "it open until 11pm". But the museum, restaurant , shop, everywhere already closed. Of course there is no view!! So I backed to the entrance soon and I asked him giving me the payback.but he said "no" "you payed for using for a lift to 2nd floor". I was very disappointed , cause he didn't say anything about that when I entered , just said "open until 11pm." And he ignored me. It was my worst experience that I payed €3.6 to just use a lift up 2nd floor and down.
  • The large building is well designed and the galleries are spread over several levels. There are a lot of temporary exhibits so there’s not much point me describing the works on display. When I visit, though, I’m impressed with the variety of media that has been included and the way the themes and stories of the works are linked together.
  • Great exhibit making you think about the "anti-modern" nature of Salzburg. Staff is unpleasant and takes pleasure in enforcing their annoying "locker" policy.
  • A wonderful building, a unique location and very interesting exhibitions...
  • Beautiful museum and very contemporary contemporary art!
