Museums in Salzburg
Museums for young and old
Experience, discover, explore! Visiting Salzburg’s museums is certainly worthwhile – and not just on rainy days! For those interested in culture, a visit to the Residence Palace Museum, the Cathedral Museum and the museum atop the Mönchberg with its changing exhibits of international artists is a must. In the Salzburg Museum you can learn a lot about this beautiful city on the Salzach river – all the way back to its Roman roots. The museum inside the Hohensalzburg Fortress provides visitors a glimpse into life in the Middle Ages under the leadership of Salzburg’s ruling prince-archbishops. In the Museum of Nature, children become junior researchers and learn first-hand about local and exotic animals and plants. A visit to the Toy Museum in Salzburg is like taking a trip back in time. Here you will find Austria’s largest collection on the history of European toys from the last 250 years.
