A nostalgic visit looking at early Christmas traditions and decorations as well as toys. Just a couple of rooms and a good gift shop.

We found this cafe attached to a museum on our first exploration of the old town. Very good cocktails and lovely staff. Lots of outdoor seating.

Most interesting and well laid out Museum. Wonderful place to take children too. It is close to the Cathedral and there is a nearby restaurant.Seniors get a discount in this Museum.

Interesting museum, one of a number covered by the Salzburg Card. Nicely laid out galleries with good facilities including a small restaurant. Current art on display not to our personal tastes but well presented. Worth a visit.

We dropped in at this museum because it started to rain and the admission was covered by our Salzburg Card. It was a very enjoyable visit. The museum is not very large - we were there for 30-40 minutes - and it focuses on Austrian...More
