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.

This is a brutal concrete building on top of one of the hills overlooking Salzburg old city and castle. You can get there by lift (separate charge). If you like modern art, you'll probably like the art here - we didtn't. There is one minor Gustav Klimt work. The interpretive material on the re-establishment of modern art after the Nazis,...

I am an artist and therefore I go to numerous exhibitions and museums wherever we go. Unfortunately my whole experience was somewhat underwhelming. Don't get me wrong - the exhibitions were good, art excellent (also down to taste) but I felt underwhelmed with the whole experience. The space is fantastic and honestly you can be so creative therein and do... More

This was a huge disappointment. If you have the Salzburg Card, worth tagging on to your itinerary for the views alone, but other than that it's a let down and you could use the Monchsberg Lift and avoid the museum altogether. Salzburg is a small city and a comprehensively Baroque one, so expectations were realistic - it's not going to... More

I would not recommend if you dont have a salzburg card, but if you do there is plenty to see and do here. Especially the garden walks and cafe on the top of the museum which offers awesome views.

We had had received rave reviews about the cafe and the views over the city and mixed assessments of the actual museum itself. The museum itself has a few interesting bits but if you really like modern art save yourself for one of the major cities. The terrace and the cafe were disappointing. OK there is a view over the...

The view was amazing. But you can ride the lift for less than 2 euros. Do that. The museum is very ordinary by world standards. No seats to sit and look or listen to exhibits. Pretty ordinary artwork. Small and disappointing.
