  • I really liked this museum! Each of the exhibits were fresh and original, yet contained traditional historical content too. At times I found the layout a bit confusing as there were no clear signs saying where to start or what room to go into next. Overall, an interesting place!
  • Unexpectedly interesting and non touristy exhibits on the history of Salzburg. The interactive music instruments exhibition was awesome.
