The Museum der Moderne Rupertinum is closed until 6th April 2017 for refurbishment. They've not bothered to update their website with information to this effect: instead, would-be visitors have to get all the way to the museum before finding a notice on printer paper taped to the door. The closure's understandable, but not providing accurate information on their website is... More

This modern art museum has spectacular views of the city of Salzburg due to its great location high above the city. We were disappointed, however, in the exhibits. We don't feel that it was worth the price of admission. If one is a modern art lover, this may be the venue.

I highly recommend a visit to the museum. As much as I was underwhelmed by the Museum der Moderne Mönchsberg, the exhibitions at the Rupertinum is well worth a visit. The exhibitions were engaging, the listening materials available were excellent - well I could have spent a couple of hours there if I was not time bound. I loved my... More

This is a great place to visit, but might not be quite what you are expecting. The Museum, tells the story that all art is Modern, it just depends at which point in time you view it. You only need a couple of houre as its not a big place. Take the lift up, stroll around the museum then walk... More

We went up to the museum of modern art on a lovely sunny wintry day and the view is outstanding so I'd recommend going up to the museum using the lift inside the mountain which is good itself. There are nice walks up there and a castle looking building that we didn't have time to explore. The museum itself is... More

A building worthy of far more content. Old electric motors and plastic shapes hanging from the ceiling were uninteresting and not relevant . The large tower that is part of the museum has beautiful views of the River and mountains and is far more interesting then the museum itself, but is an office for the museum and is off limits....

We like modern art, we did not enjoy this museum which we found to be mediocre at best. Seems a waste of space in the centre of Salzburg Old Town.

I happened upon this museum as I was leaving Franziskanerkirche, and I'm glad I did! we had gone to the MdM Monchsberg the night before (which we thoroughly enjoyed), and we were happy to see its counterpart, the MdM Rupertinum. This one is smaller than the other, but I still enjoyed walking through. I would recommend doing a little research... More

The exhibition was rather small, weak and in parts incoherent. They also seem to be more focused on reaching children rather than adults.
