While you are visiting the imposing fortress, I recommend taking time to go through the museum. It gives a great insight into the workings of the fortress, as well as interesting exhibits relating to Salzburg and surrounding area.

its part of the admission to the fortress, so if you are up there you might as well go through. It was informative but not a large collection. highlight is certainly the room with the armor/weapons held up in the shape of men - my 10 year old loved itt

This place like all other museums has the usual weapons, armours, currencies and quite a few torturing instruments. But there are some interesting parts which are architecturally cool. However the highlight is the room with Iron Soldiers wearing the iron masks and armours. You would be pleasantly surprised to know such a rich piece of history while coming out.

Wow - this photo doesn't quite do this part of the Burgmuseum, it was really impressive. We didn't have huge amounts of time but we're glad we did spend some time wandering around because it was well laid out win interesting artefacts.

The museum is not free of charge but worth paying. The exhibition displays the history. There are many remains like wall of a Roman fort, weapons, Armour suites, coins and instruments of torture. Overall a good pace for a museum enthusiastic.
