I have no idea why the museum was deserted when we visited - we felt the €7 entry charge was very reasonable, and almost all the exhibits were fully described in English as well... read more

Went in Sunday as many shops closed and it was open. Is a history of Salzburg...but really well presented. As we don't speak or read German, were pleased how much was subtitled in English. The section on music and musical instruments had headset and small selections for many things to listen to was a lot of fun. Seeing the Marionettes... More

We were disappointed at the lack of direction and no English brochsure to explain the layout of this beautiful museum. We did not know what floor to start and there were manny lost others trying to figure out the layout. However the displays are unbelievable and interesting with English sub text. It is unfortunate the staff selling the tickets do... More

I have no idea why the museum was deserted when we visited - we felt the €7 entry charge was very reasonable, and almost all the exhibits were fully described in English as well as German. Perhaps the absence of information in Japanese discouraged the substantial number of Japanese tourists we saw in Salzburg? The building was once the archbisphop's... More

Lots of interesting info. We found the museum a little hard to navigate. I wouldn't say its a must see but handy if you have a spare half hour in Mozart platz.

This museum is delightfully spacious, clean and well laid out, providing something of interest for everyone. Our favourite was the musical instrument room - most educational. I would recommended arriving early in the morning to enjoy it before the rush.

My friend and I was freezing after walking through the massive Christmas market, so we dropped in to the museum (we are museum-fans after all). They had interesting exhibits like ancient finds etc, but the presentation was confusing and repetitive at times. It was as though a master planner carved up the zones of the museum, assigned it to various... More

The museum entry was covered by our Salzburg Card, so since it was cold outside we opted to spend an hour or two inside. We particularly enjoyed the local archeology exhibits, with everything from Roman floor mosaics to coin hoards. There are quite a few exhibits that had been preserved in the old salt mines from ancient times. It was... More

Museum is located just behind the cathedral and would benefit from more clear signage as it could be easlly missed. It is free entry with the Salzburg card and gives a good background into the citys history. In the basement is the Salzburg panorama (also free with the salzburg card. Worth a visit if you have a spare couple of... More

I'll start this like the rest of my reviews - for a visit over 24 hours, get the Salzburg card! It offers free entry to virtually everything in the city, including this museum. It's interesting to me to find this museum so lowly ranked because I thought it was the best out of Festung, it and the DomQuartier. The others... More
