“Creative Platform for Modern Art”
A new work is added every year, forming its own dialogue with the baroque heritage of the Mozart city and the juxtaposition always creates lively debate.

The view from the museum overlooking Salzburg and the mountains is worth the trip up there. However, the museum itself was lacking in art and there were a lot of bare spaces throughout. Others may like it but I thought it could have offered more.

Worth a trip to see the building but as it says on the tin this is modern art so be prepared for the unusual. In our case the Andrea Fraser exhibition that was on. We had not heard of her but know her now. Her...More
