I tend to agree with John L, the last reviewer, on the relative interest of the art at this moment in January,2014, but we are reviewing the museum, not the current show. Of course the trip up in the elevator is cool, the view from the top stupendous (you could walk, by the way) and the actual building quite a... More

There are three floors of exhibitions in this gallery. Art appreciation is objective; we go to modern exhibitions regularly - we are not traditionalists. For us, one involved an artist on a personal ego trip including an obsession with his own phallus. The second was much more to our taste with a combination of photographs transformed into other media including... More

We actually did not have time to visit the museum although we would have liked to. We had an early morning flight but heard there were great views from the top of the MdM lift. We paid the fee to take the lift and were not disappointed. The views are fabulous! There is a restaurant at the top which I... More

The Salzburg card came in useful yet again. The modern art on show was like the curate's egg - good in parts. As commented upon by "Cubsfan" there was an exhibition that was, frankly, quite revolting ( and I am no prude), but, to give credit, it does make it plain that it is offensive and not for the little...

I'm not always a great lover of modern art, but I really enjoy walking around this museum and looking at the different exhibitions. Very well presented with for very friendly and well informed staff. The restaurant at the top is fantastic and not too expensive with amazing views of the city.

You have to take an elevator up to the museum and thus the views from outside the museum were spectacular. Important to note that behind the museum is a beautiful park that is worth taking the time to walk around. The museum itself is quite nice. They do not appear to have permanent exhibits but exhibitions instead. We saw one... More

This museum is for those who like modern art. My highpoint of the visit was the view of Salzburg from the top of the mountain there.

My husband and I are not huge modern art fans but since we had a Salzburg card that included admission we decided to check this place out. We were fascinated by all the things the city has built into the mountain and the elevator in this museum is no exception. The really amazing part of this visit though, was the... More

It was so great on a swelteringly hot day to take the lift up and spend a inspirational cool morning in the air-conditioned tranquility of this great gallery. I saw the Mushrooms and Flowers exhibition, which was mostly fascinating, beautiful and inspiring.
