“Fascinating variety of exhibits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

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!

“Thankfully we didn't pay for this”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

This was included as part of the Salzburg card. Since it was Monday the museum was closed but the Panorama was open. But seemingly they were in the process of tearing down an exhibit or something since there was only the painting and lots of empty exhibit areas. I can't believe they were still charging people for that.

“Panorama had gone”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We went in to see the painted panorama, but found out that it had been replaced with a temporary (and prolonged) exhibition on the von Trapp family, which was somewhat of a rip-off, especially as the BBC had shown the real story in a documentary earlier this year and VT story has no real relevance to Salzburg culture and is barely to please US and Japanese tourists. Sad.

“Panaroma Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

we paid for the Panorama Museum only as we wanted to see the exhibition about the real Von Trapp family which was interesting and different from the story told in the film.
