|About these ratings|
The Salzburg Museum has a wide range of archaeological and artistic treasures: from a 17th century carillon (a set of mechanized bells) that plays Mozart to religious Renaissance paintings and artifacts from Salzburg's early Roman origins. The most remarkable exhibit (listed as a separate museum for admission) contains several 360-degree panorama paintings. Still others profess the true marvel of the museum is the actual facility.
In 2006, the Salzburg Museum re-opened at a new location in Altstadt. It's now located inside the Neue Residenz, an "overflow" palace for royal guests, diplomats, and advisors. Open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., combined tickets for this site and the Panorama Museum will set you back about €8 EUR (or about $11 USD), plus there are available discounts for minors, families and with the Salzburg Card. Check the official website for information on special exhibitions, times, and ticket prices.
