Exciting alternatives

Museum der Moderne

The Museum der Moderne in Salzburg shows exhibitions on classical modernism all year round at two locations - the Rupertinum in the historic centre of Salzburg and the modern, striking building on the Mönchsberg. International art treasures from the 20th and 21st centuries are presented in the museum's temporary exhibitions.
