The museum is all right, There isn't that much history about Salzburg itself which is a massive shame. Would much rather have a chronological history of the city not another same historical facts about Mozart. Also 90% of history is post year 1816, like before that city didn't exist?

Good to see some of the artefacts. You pick up the general history of Salzburg as you see the sights, so the detail offered in the museum was not really where we were at. If it's raining, it's a good way to kill a couple of hours, but we didn't spend long. Entrance included in the Salzburg card.

We learnt a lot about about it and its leading inhabitants, its history and culture and why it became so notable.

This was one of the most interesting museum i have ever been to. It was not just looking at pictures or collections it was very interactive and all descriptions are in English. There is that much to see you will have to have a second visit.

If you want to know more about Salzburg this is the place to go. Lots of history. The musical instruments on display were very interesting and one can listen how it sounds too. The descriptions were in English too. Displays and presentations are stunning.

As far as museums go, this was interesting, but really nothing special. Lots of rooms, kind of a disjointed display. Some rooms had air conditioning, but most did not and they were a bit warm on a summer day. The staff was friendly and helpful.

At first I thought this was going to be a lightweight collection, but the longer I stayed the more impressed I became. Their local history sections were well documented, easy to understand, and visually attractive. It's well worth the 7 euro entrance fee!

Very interesting and well planned Museum. Plenty of items and paintings to see. Old and modern exhibits. No photography allowed. There is an entrance fee of 8 Euros or 10 Euros including Panorama Museum. Allow 1 hour for the visit.
