  • The museum itself had a large number, and varying range of exhibits. Being a musician, I particularly enjoyed the instrument exhibition. However there were some points that took away from this visit. ...  more »
  • Apart from a temporary dedicated to beautiful drawings from the Louvre (Michelamgelo, Raphael, Caravaggio ..), notable the music Museum; ad hoc movies show and feel authentic Baroque instruments through headphones or into disuse, such as the waterspout, the fortepiano or a series of flutes. Everything arranged perfectly. Worth a trip.

  • This museum didn't disappoint, great contemporary displays of historical art and objects. The local Salzburg landscape paintings are just beautiful. Interior room ceilings also have amazing decoration...  more »

  • Upon entering the ART ROYAL exhibit at the Salzburg Museum, the guard immediately approached me and shouted "No photos!" even though I never touched my camera. He then proceeded to follow me from room to room, making it impossible to look at the artwork. While other folks entered the exhibit (some with cameras), he ignored them and continued to follow me around; it was obvious that I was being singled out and targeted. When we told the guard that this was inappropriate, he proceeded to laugh it off. We complained to the manager upstairs and he tried to sweep the incident under the rug, barely offering any apology. Meanwhile, the guard was smirking to himself in the corner. I would give zero stars to this place if I could for their rude staff and indifferent manager. There are so many better things to do in Salzburg - do not waste your time and money here.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!

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.
