This museum offers a beautiful view over the city and a specific kind of art which is not for everybody. But I must say there is a very nice section with french theater posters dated around 1900.

We took the elevator up to the museum so we could appreciate the views and enjoy a Stiegl at the restaurant. We sat out on the terrace where the views were brilliant and we even watched a thunderstorm before making our way under cover. A lovely spot for some refreshment, strudel and far reaching views of Salzburg

Very disappointed in the museum and "art" on display. Mostly exhibits of avant garde, self-indulgent artists. We did like the travel poster exhibit, but that was about it. Museum restaurant has great views, but entrees are close to $30.

Maybe it was more because of the exhibition itself or the fact we're art philistines but this was definitely one for the chin strokers.... We had entrance included in our Salzburg Card and had ventured up the lift from Gstattengasse mainly to take in the view of the old City of Salzburg and decided to take a look around the... More

Even if you have the Salzburg card which allow free ride with the elevator and entrance, it is a waste of time. The view on the top is really amazing, but you can see them from other sites( fortress...) I did not find any art ( may be I do not understand art). The only thing which has captured my... More

Perhaps I'm an old soul when it comes to art, but the modern art exhibitions on display didn't do much for me. They failed to capture my interest, and I left feeling a bit frustrated. The building itself is beautiful, and the views are phenomenal. We stopped for coffee and cake at the restaurant, which is nicely decorated although does... More

This was included with the salzburg card we bought so we did not pay extra for it and also there was a temporary exhibition of posters of toulouse le trec and others of the time. That exhibition was interesting, the permanent stuff was very disappointing and we do normally enjoy modern art so it was nowhere near as good as... More

Didn't actually see any exhibits. Took the elevator (fee) up from the old town. Great view of Salzburg.

Only houses the most pathetic excuses for art. Went with friends, admittedly for a school project, but after seeing the pieces in this museum I was outraged.

This is worth a visit just for the lift up from the main town, the super restaurant with probably the best views over Salzburg. I'm a bit of an art lover so I enjoyed the exhibitions but they are possibly an acquired taste. The one thing you do need to be aware of is that you can buy a ticket... More
