They have no permanent exhibitions, but a number of temporary ones. These, seemed to me to be excellent quality, and also there is some variation so there will be something for everybody. However, the exhibitions are large, and they are all contemporary art. Some of these, I might like to visit in my home town. However, when visiting as a... More

I enjoyed this museum overall but I found it a bit cramped. There was a lot in each exhibit placed very close together, it was a bit overwhelming. There seems to be more art than the museum can really fit. That said, there were some very interesting piece that I'm glad I saw. With the student price it was pretty... More

Some museums are informative and some are inspiring and this museum is both. So worth a visit and it's setting in Monchsburg is enough to make the trip itself worthwhile. Beautiful views of Saltzburg City

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.
