The museum has no flow! But it is trying great ideas to interact with those that come to it. I liked the inclusivity, especially when a signer is projected on the walls in one the rooms to explain what everyone else is hearing

This is a very well done museum with both travelling and permanent displays. It has many interactive exhibits on arts, culture, history and life in Salzburg over the last millennium. I recommend a visit, early in the day before the crowds get thick.
