The Museum of Modern Art is located on the top of the Mönchsberg mountain above the roofs of the Old Town of Salzburg and is reached by special lifts. Both the lift and the museum entrance are included in the Salzburg Card, highly recommended. The...More

Marvellously positioned on Monchsberg and next to the decorative 19th century Water Tower, we were delighted with the couple of hours we enjoyed here. Towards the start a sequence of black and white photographs titled From the Portfolio of Doggedness caught our eye. A major...More

Pay to take elevator to sit in the cafe and enjoy the view. They will stamp ticket for a free ride down. One of the best relaxed views of the Alps and city. Museum is disappointing with very few pieces.

Anyone who knows this museum's world-class reputation for engaging, interesting, and provocative exhibits will be sorely disappointed if you visit now. Only two-thirds of the museum is open, and what's on display is a dreary collection of "political art" focusing on the 60s, accompanied by...More

You can access the restaurant/cafe without paying an entrance fee. The views across the City are excellent both from inside or out on the terrace in summer. We had a coffee and a cake for a reasonable price, with the service being very efficient (and...More

It costs €8 to enter this building which claims to be an art museum. Here you can find absolutely uninspiring dross such as the collection of gherkins standing on various boxes. It's not art! There's no talent or skill behind it. Furthermore, the place is...More

There is one good thing about this place, and one interesting thing. The good thing is the view from just outside it - better, I'd say, even than the one from the Fortress. The interesting thing is how uninteresting the museum is once you get...More

On a lovely October Sunday, we enjoyed tea and cakes in the cafe. The views are spectacular. We walked up one of the paths and found it fairly easy especially beautiful with the autumn colours. The waiter gave us free lift passes for the journey...More

I came here many times already – the location of the museum is great. You can either take the lift from the old-town straight to the entrance or take one of the many walkways up the hill. Up there you have a great view down...More

It's possible. The restaurant is independent from the museum.
