Variety of local history and special exhibit on lost treasures - Salzburg card first

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.

I got a warm welcome from the reception and details of the audio guide for the special exhibition on the basement floor. The foundation of the museum is fascinating in itself and there is plenty to keep all ages entertained for hours on end. The Museum was founded in 1834 when a small collection of military memorabilia was made accessible... More

Great time journey through 200 years of history in this fine museum in the heart of Salzburg. If you have enough time go there and enjoy.

Unfortunately the description of the panorama museum vastly exceeds the reality of the experience. Small, uninformative and lack of insightful signage. The only bit that seemed worth doing was the panorama 360 degree painting which could be easily missed. However the real problem is that the museum does not encourage you to think or engage with what you're viewing. If... More

Well, it didn't get off to a good start when one lady pronounced my bag OK to go into the museum, and then another one in the next room barking at me to go back and put it in a locker. Then of course my ticket wouldn't work twice...grr You cannot get a map of the museum, which is a... More

The first museum in Salzburg I visited, using my Salzburg card. What I saw was a few rooms, including one with ruins of former buildings in it. However, I have a feeling I didn't see everything. Luckily, it was free. So if you go, try to get a map first.

We enjoyed our visit here (it is closed Mondays by the way) but thought it was not quite up to par for us. We are experienced museum visitors and found some of the exhibits (which were in both German and English) rather abbreviated in explanation. We were glad we went but it was not inexpensive.
