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. The museum offers an ideal setting for presentations of the museum’s own comprehensive collection and large-scale temporary exhibitions of international contemporary art.

The Museum der Moderne Rupertinum, a baroque town palace built by the archbishops, located in the immediate vicinity of Festival Hall and Cathedral precinct, has been adapted for the presentation of modern art. The two buildings of the Museum der Moderne Salzburg offer 3.000 m2 of exhibition space for thematic and monographic exhibitions of 20th and 21st centry art, as well as presentations of graphics and photography.

  • Good to see some of the artefacts. You pick up the general history of Salzburg as you see the sights, so the detail offered in the museum was not really where we were at. If it's raining, it's a good ...  more »
  • I thought the audio guide and the displays gave me a lot of information about Salzburg. Some of the rooms were really beautiful as well. Good for an hour or two if you have the time. 
  • We learnt a lot about about it and its leading inhabitants, its history and culture and why it became so notable.

  • Staff is rude/unfriendly but unfortunately that seems to be true in most museums in Salzburg. The museum itself is very modern and does use innovative techniques. However, due to poor curation and contextualization, it fails to convince you to care about the city/region and its history. Only go if you have the Salzburg Card for free entry or if it's raining and you're looking for a temporary shelter.
  • 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.
  • It’s an excellent place to start a visit to Salzburg and tells the story of the history of the city really well with some innovative display techniques. I found the exhibits on the top level particularly interesting and relevant to today as well as the past.
