Discover the cultural history and legends of the city at Salzburg Museum. Housed within a restored 17th-century archbishop's guesthouse, the museum features two floors, the art hall that lies beneath the inner courtyard, and an underground passage with archeological displays that connects this with another museum. Exhibits on the first floor offer a glimpse into the lives, achievements, and legacies of the city's spiritual and secular leaders. The museum highlights include the furniture from the nearby palace, the earliest example of a bass clarinet, and the original manuscript of the largest-scale piece of Baroque music.

I would like to see more paintings, artefects, etc. Currently, it's mostly historical narratives (readings) which is accessible online.

A wonderful museum! Very interactive and you learn a lot (and easily) about the history of Salzburg. The exhibitions are well put together, with varied rooms that keep you interested and entertained. We stayed there for almost 3 hours. Would absolutely recommend, we kept talking about the museum all day long.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who is visiting Salzburg! It was a modern museum with a touch of something for everyone, from the paintings of the city to special exhibits on coffee to the children's area! If you're here, GO!!
