Why Visit Salzburg Museum?

Houses the 'Mythos Salzburg' exhibition, 'Treasures of the Past' and visiting exhibitions.

Salzburg Museum is housed in the New Residence (Neue Residenz) building opposite the Residenz. Instantly recognised by the famous Carillon Tower which has been chiming since 1702.

It displays precious objects of art and has many exhibition rooms charting the history of Salzburg from the Iron Age up to the present day. One of the main exhibits is the Roman mosaic floor that was discovered under Mozartplatz .

Between March and October you are able to have a guided tour of the Carrillon, weather permitting . The view from the top provides a new perspective on the city. Ask at the museum for more details.
