Centrally located on "Museum Row," it was a thoughtfully planned exhibit tracing the history far back to Roman settlements. I was particularly intrigued with with the Roman tile floor room where they finished in paint the missing sections. The rooms are presented like classrooms where...More

This is sort of a "museum as an afterthought". Not much there, some history of the Nazi party and other governments but not worth a visit if you're just touring as there are so many other sites that are more interesting.

The temporary exhibit on the museum's complicity during the Third Reich is absolutely brilliant! Such a clear narrative, beautifully illustrated with well selected objects. A fresh and unique perspective on the period. I highly recommend. The rest of the museum is also well curated and...More

I enjoyed learning more about the storied history of Salzburg, different classical instruments (and how they sound like) as well as the introspective exhibition about the museum’s complicity with the Nazi regime. The toilets are very clean and there are some nice views of the...More

We went here expecting to read and see about Nazi times but instead there are a few old pottery relics, some art and boring boards to read . Waste of 8 euros each.

I usually like this kind of small local museum, but this was even better than most. Their thoughtful exhibit of the museum's complicity with the Nazis was something that will stay with me for a long time. I highly recommend it.

We spent several hours here as the building is extensive and the displays imaginative. Superb art collection, history of the city and much more. Visit after you have been there a day or two and then you recognize the place discussed.
