  • The museum was full of varied and interesting things. The first floor was dedicated to music, which didnt really spark my interest, however there were other floors containing lots of historical items ...  more »
  • Because I use the Salzburg card, I want to go as many places as possible. The museum was out of the plan, but it was worth it, and it was a good idea to take the kids, because it introduced the history of Salzburg, development, culture, the music Pavilion on the second floor can also try to listen to different music. There are not many people coming to the museum to visit.

  • Their displays are very well organized and with abundant details, focusing on archaeology and medieval history, the architecture of different eras and the main achievements of the inhabitants of the region related to the arts, science and policy . The original building where the Museum suffered great damage during the second world war. He had temporary relocations, until finally it was emplazador in the Neue Residenz in Mozartplatz, in the Centre of Salzburg. It was the residence of the archbishops of Salzburg and is home to the famous Glockenspiel, a carillon of 35 bells from the 16th century. The Museum is divided into three levels: the first, inside the exhibitions and multimedia presentations that discuss the important characters in the history of Salzburg; the second floor details the modern history of art in Salzburg and the works of art of the romantic era, are exposed as well as landscapes painted by local artists, and a collection of archaeological and medieval objects (draw attention to a Celtic jug and an altar Gothic winged). The Panorama passage is an underground corridor that connects the Museum with the Panorama Museum, a facility of about twenty-six meters with a painting by the 19th-century city. In the basement of the courtyard, you can visit the art exhibition. It is located in the plaza Mozartplatz, near the Salzach River, the Cathedral's Museum and birthplace of Mozart.

  • Excellent place to learn a little history of Salzburg with some fun activities for kids. Brilliant use of space and displays. Most narration in German but you could supposedly get an audio guide for your own leisure learning. Funnily we were not told where we could get them. Guy selling tickets by the counter look less than enthusiastic about his role other than making sure everyone deposits their bags before entering. Café within the museum really is a self service coffee maker which you'll need to pay by coins for an espresso or coffee. No food available so be prepared.
  • Lots to see. Gives a nice comprehensive history of Salzburg and not just it's most famous son like the other museums! Take an audio guide for a more engaging tour. Entry is included with the Salzburg card.
  • Criative presentation of information, some interactive things, cared and beautiful objects. I missed a little more of the pre-austrian period.
  • Mostly Mozart and classic instruments. Mozart was born here. Classical music folks will enjoy it more than some others, I believe.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Salzburg

There’s no better area to stay in the city where Mozart was born than the historical city center, a World Heritage Site. Salzburg's hub offers comfortable accommodations nestled between a rich array of sights. The Salzach River cuts directly through town, dividing the city into east and west. Look for accommodations in the Altstadt, tucked in between the river and the city’s mountain, Monchsberg. For budget-minded travelers, try a centrally located youth hostel or small hotel. If price isn’t an issue, splurge on Austrian luxury in an upscale hotel.
