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

This museum is only interesting for people who are interested in Salzburg itself. I don't think casual visitors will enjoy it. That being said, if you love Salzburg as much as I do, it's definitely worth a visit.

The city museum is lacking in detail and chronology, and there isn't much information in English. The Panorama museum is across the building and is much more informative.

We weren't expecting much but got the audioguide and went around. Though the organization was a bit haphazard, there was lots of information buried in the exhibits. Many were interactive and quite extensive once you got the hang of it. Worthwhile.

We were looking for a good introduction to Salzburg's history - this was not it. Nice museum but it is not a history of Salzburg. Learnt a lot more from the internet and the 12.15 tour from the tourist information office with Werner who was excellent. Much better value for 9 euro. I like the option of watercoolers part-way through... More

This was a great choice, with free audio guides in English, and special things for the kids to look for in the various rooms. That kept them engaged -- they felt like they were on a treasure hunt. And we were able to enjoy the very nice collection.

This is a small museum and due to a lack of time, the only one I got to see in my day here. However, I thought they had carefully crafted exhibitions beyond the regular efforts other places usually take. There was an Ars Sacra exhibit that was okey (I'm not a fan of religious art), a topic on the creation... More

When we visited they had a display on marionettes, a huge collection of medieval sacred art and the permanent exhibit on the history of Salzburg. Smart and modern with superb curation. And some fun-looking features for kids, too!
