Auf dem Mönchsberg, über den Dächern der Altstadt, liegt das 2004 eröffnete Museum der Moderne Mönchsberg. In dem puristischen Bau werden Werke aus der eigenen Sammlung sowie Wechselausstellungen von internationalem Format gezeigt.

In einem barocken Stadtpalais im Herzen der Altstadt befindet sich das 1983 gegründete Stammhaus - das Museum der Moderne Rupertinum. In Wechselausstellungen sind Gemälde, Fotografien, Skulpturen und Grafiken renommierter nationaler und internationaler Künstler zu sehen.

The Museum der Moderne Mönchsberg is picturesquely situated high above the rooftops of the old town of Salzburg and offers new, contemporary architecture for large-scale exhibitions and presentations of the museum's own holdings an international context.

  • An interesting museum well worth a visit and lots too see you are best to get the Salzburg card to get in and you can use for the other museums in this area  more »
  • This museum is located in the Neue Residenz. State of the art, it is designed according to a scenography by themes a little confusing, which plays with the timeline. Little frequented, however it deserves to be seen.

  • For in-depth understanding of Salzburg’s history this is a must visit. Also, the glockenspiel tower with its 30+ bells appeals to most. They have some amazing artefacts from Roman times and cover all periods of history to modern times. Particularly the very eventful last 400 years.
  • I like museums and art galleries, but I just had a poor experience with this visit. They had an exhibit on the bottom floor for this guy who's are looked basically like he dipped air filters in dirt and cake frosting. Some looked like they were dipped in both. The upper floors had a lot of offer, but the top floor presented me with a lot of obstacles. Someone was doing kiddy land story time in the middle of the exhibit so I couldn't look at half the art because 30 kids were sitting on the floor. Couldn't have been a good story because they kept looking at me whilst I examined the other half of the exhibit. At the end of the top floor, someone was conducting some kind of class and I didn't want to interrupt that, so I had to back track all the way to the beginning of that floor. I had to pass story time again. Of course they looked at me because the story was boring. There's also a cafe on the middle floor, half way through the exhibit. All these people were being loud af so it was hard to enjoy the photography and history posted in the adjoining room. People are just rude.
  • If you fancy history then this is a good place for you but for normal people who just want to walk around and see what's going on in this city then I suggest you skip this because it is just going to be a boring tour. TO each his own!
  • There are some really good exhibits especially their masterpieces gallery. The guide was helpful as well. I strongly encourage you to visit this museum before visiting other sites because it gives you some historical context on the political setup of Salzburg over the years.
  • I had a free pass for this museam. A few interesting items but as I'm not from the area, most of it I couldn't relate to. Not much in English inside either.
