I am not sure what is permanent in the museum but it had an extensive exhibit on WWI, the propaganda around it, the effects of it and the enduring history of it. There was also another exhibit on the "myth of Salzburg", the effort to market the city as a "fairy land", by one of the Habsburg princes. A separate... More

There is a ww1 display on at the moment , it was a bit boring . The part of the palace in the original decoration was wonderful . I really liked the history of the archbishop/ princes/ rulers part and seeing the paintings in that section of the museum . My darling liked the other displays as well , so... More

The most boring thing I did in Salzburg during my 4 day visit. Since it was included in the Salzburg Card deal, my father and I decided on our last day to give it try. What a waste of time! The only floor of the museum I was interested in was closed (the art floor was closed due to refurbishment)... More

This museum provides a great insight into the history of the Salzburg stretching back many centuries and millennia. Some of the artefacts are quite impressive including the portraits of the Prince-Archbishops. I was a little disappointed that there were not many more exhibitions available at that time with a couple of the floors being closed to the public. But it... More

This is a medium sized museum. They have some really nice information about the history of Salzburg, but I really loved their WW1 display. It was nicely done! Would recommend it for those who are interested in history, particularly of Salzburg

The museum's extensive presentation of WWI memorabilia and photographs is a sobering account of this epoch in world history and the fallout on those affected. There is much to explore here, and we wished our visit hadn't been cut short by time constraints.

Salzburg Museum is the first location in our itinerary in Salzburg. It is situated close to one of the tram stations. It gives a detailed explanation of how Salzburg became the city it is today and how it was being ruled by many different rulers. Certainly a place we will spend more time in if our itinerary allows. I will... More

Since this is the Centenary of WW1 the Museum exhibit on nit seemed very relevant and informative. I am a history buff and found it very informative.

We enjoyed the archaeology exhibit in the basement but what really stood out was the exhibit on World War I . Since we are from Canada we think of this war as dominated by trench warfare on the Western Front. This exhibit showed us aspects that we knew little about. The main focus however was on how the war affected... More

An interactive museum which is ideal for groups and families. My girlfriend and I visited this museum and the panorama museum. We weren't really impressed by these museums. The audio guide was poor. The interesting part was the video at the end of the museum. We had already visited the fortress and the residenz so some of the information was... More
