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 compositions 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 facility itself.
In 2006, the Salzburg Museum re-opened at a new location in Altstadt. The museum is 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 10 euros (or $11), plus there are available discounts for minors and families. For those with a Salzburg Card, admission to both museums is free.
