Discover the cultural history and legends of the city at Salzburg Museum. Housed within a restored 17th-century archbishop's guesthouse, the museum features two floors, the art hall that lies beneath the inner courtyard, and an underground passage with archeological displays that connects this with another museum. Exhibits on the first floor offer a glimpse into the lives, achievements, and legacies of the city's spiritual and secular leaders. The museum highlights include the furniture from the nearby palace, the earliest example of a bass clarinet, and the original manuscript of the largest-scale piece of Baroque music. Put Salzburg Museum and other Salzburg attractions into our Salzburg trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
