“Very nice great location ”
A new work is added every year, forming its own dialogue with the baroque heritage of the Mozart city and the juxtaposition always creates lively debate.

The view from the museum overlooking Salzburg and the mountains is worth the trip up there. However, the museum itself was lacking in art and there were a lot of bare spaces throughout. Others may like it but I thought it could have offered more.

I am truly perplexed by the bad reviews for this museum. First, I’d like to point out that many of these reviews are quite old. Next, if you’re expecting a NY MOMA in every modern art museum, then you’re just being pretentious. I’m sorry you...More

The curation for this museum is thoughtful, aware and forward thinking. Many museums fail to give women equal space as men but Museum der Moderne was very balanced, even devoting an entire floor to a Moorman exhibit, highlighting that she was more than mere muse....More
