The walk up the Monchsberg is inspiring and the view over the city amazing. The museum is quite big with good exhibitions. The interior can seem a bit cold and concrete like, but the art here is good. There was an abundance of guards when we visited, but they were very discreet (some not that attentive to the photo prohibition).... More

Museum is located on the top of one of the Salzburg mountains and can be accessed by a lift. Both the lift and museum are free with the Salzburg card and the views of the old town of Salzburg are spectacular. The modern art museum is OK but a bit disorientating as it seems to be a wide collection of... More

Amazing view from the top of Salzburg, even on cloudy days. You can buy the one way ticket at the reception desk, go up the elevator, take a coffee at the restaurant and get a free ticket to go down the elevator.

We went here for food and drinks for the evening, the view is stunning - from up high you can see most of Salzburg, but the food was a bit overpriced for my taste - we paid about 75EUR each for food and a couple of drinks. it´s worth it for a nice treat but just be aware.

This is a very smart, modern museum (Think Tate Modern) and well worth the trip for the building, galleries, restaurant and bar plus the magnificent views of Salzburg. We got the lift up and walked down into the city. Highly recommended - a really great afternoon.

This review is specifically about the restaurant M32 attached to the museum. We did not go into the museum we walked up for the view and lunch and were not at all disappointed. This is a fine restaurant not a cafe so of course its not cheap! The food is amazing though and we took our time and were not... More

It is a very stark austere museum. The high ceiling spaces and all concrete construction match the physical location on the rocky hill. The view from the top level is astonishing. The current exhibition inspired by the American elections was interesting but created no thrills.

When you leave the elevator, you are excited about that great view over Salzburg - even at a cloudy day in November. The museum offers modern art, has a nice and light staircase. The exhibition rooms are a little bit dark and have low room heights. Therefore the art items are not so well presented. The restaurant at the roof... More

Rating is solely for the view, which is worth paying the small amount for. Skip the museum, head straight for the viewing point upon getting out the elevator.

Expensive cafe and we visited on a misty day so there was no view which was a shame. Really didn't like the art! Most interesting bits were the old photos.
