Visited this museum not knowing what there actually was in terms of exhibitions. The WWI section was incredibly interesting. You hear so much about the British perspective but never seen anything on the Austrian viewpoint before. An incredible insight with lots of objects on display. I would rate the museum higher if that was the sole museum but the rest... More

Salzburg itself is an amazing place. The bridges, museums, alleys and even the food has a uniqueness in itself. The museum is a good place to explore and learn. It is located near at Mozartplatz. Excellent cafe s and shops nearby. It was a great place and a good experience.

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.
