Wow . . . so bad it's funny. It is apparently supposed to be a museum depicting experimental or High-Concept art combined with exhibits of what was once considered "Moderne" - - - but almost everything on display has a modern theme, but circa 1965 or so. Seriously, go . . . . but only if you want to be... More

It has an eclectic mix of mediums. I was not entirely enthralled by the current exhibits. This is a purely subjective comment though, they might inspire other visitors. The facilities are excellent. If you are not a fan of modern art, perhaps leave this one out of your plans.

This was the second exhibition I've seen here and unfortunately, the exhibitions still don't match up to the great building the museum has. A couple of photos and videos of performance art and past exhibitions from somewhere just aren't enough. They need a nice permanent collection.

We took the lift up to the cafe, had a coffee and just soaked up the view over looking the Old Town, magic! Very pleasant way to take a breather from our meanderings. Then we walked back down the hill - simply lovely.

We couldn't have been more surprised and disappointed with the current installations at this museum, and it was not at all what we expected. To sum it up, I would have to admit it was much too far out and experimental for my taste and not my definition of "art".....modern or otherwise. To each his own I guess. Others may... More

Sitting on top of the Monschberg Hill and built into the rock with an amazing view of the old city it is an extraordinary example of modern architecture by Viennese Architect Hollein. It is part of the complex that includes the. Rupertinum Museum an old baroque building ( lovely example of re- architecture). Although modern art exhibition of installations is... More

What's being declared as "art" today (in our "modern" world) is quite sad. all concrete walls, silly and/or boring installations, the few interactive parts are mostly out of order and the "guards" are just there to be impolite. At least you know where the money is going, cause 3 guards per floor want to be paid. waste of time and... More

If I have the opportunity, I visit the modern/contemporary art museum wherever I go. As an art lover I do not avoid this experience, so I did the same in Salzburg. After visiting the museum I was so happy because was included in Salzburg Card – otherwise it would have been a waste of money and time! It’s nothing spectacular... More

Got tickets for cake and hot beverage at its cafeteria. Great view, the lady hostess should work for security. Rude, bad tempered. If they give out tickets to attract tourists, at least treat them well.
