i really enjoyed the museum (while i dont know as much as i would like about modern art, i do enjoy checking out modern art museums while traveling). be sure to check out the current exhibits on their website before going for a bit of context. the cafe outside has fantastic views of old town, and there were some fun...

Wow, I'm usually an art lover, but I must admit this is the first time I've left a museum and thought that it was a waste of time and money. The only saving grace for me was the exhibition on the planned but not executed buildings of Salzburg, the models were incredible; however, that in itself definitely would not be... More

The way to the museum is quite an adventure. You take an elevator that is built deep inside the mountain, up to the top. This is a great start! Afterwards, you would see the astonishing location which offers a view of the old city with mountains in the background. Just WOW! BUT...nothing more. collection is truly poor and very disappointing.... More

I am going to be honest and confess that modern art is not my cup of tea, especially the performance kind. Museum der Moderne Monchsberg did not impress me but the exhibition of the buildings that was planned or proposed but never built in Salzburg was rather interesting. Especially, I guess, for people that have been a lot in Salzburg... More

The Rupertinum building houses the great works of Expressionism but is not on the same site. Stung by the 3.50 euro lift fee (lift only, not museum entry), the museum has one of the best views of Salzburg but the curators have not chosen well. The work is supposed to be challenging but was not novel and very poorly executed.

One of the better modern art museums I've been to, with dedicated space for a limited number of artists allowing you to better understand their body of work. Had a few great installations at the time I visited. The view of the city from outside the museum are a highlight

The views down over the city are the best in Salzburg. Sadly this can not be said for the art in this museum as far as we were concerned. Get the lift to the top and visit the cafe (which was great) and save your money for something else in Salzburg!

There are 4 exhibitions and if you take 1 minute to watch them it's one minute too long of your time. If you take the SalzburgCard it's free but in the end I was even considering to ask for my money back.

I am not an overly art person but I usually find something I like in an exhibit, not here though. Mainly filled with "Performance Art" and it may be art to the person doing it but not to me watching the results or a video of it. I got in free and it was not worth the time used walking... More
