Interesting and different Modern art museum located in the top of a rock in Salzburg. To go to it we took an elevator built inside the rock.

Very nice location. Built inside the rock. But i didnt like the whole theme and the concept of the art pieces. I dont consider this sort of art to be modern. Dont take any kids.

Just ok. This is very much a curator's gallery and exhibition space. Lots of rather obscure artworks with little contextual information. The restaurant is a rip off. 3 euros for tap water and 3 euros each added to the service charge. Soup just ok but very expensive. Views great though...

There didn't seem to be any permanent collection on display, only an exhibition of the woeful Carolee Schneeman. We also, astonishingly, paid €7 to use a lift.

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
