More about the Museum der Moderne in Salzburg?

The Museum der Moderne Salzburg, with its two locations, is a prominent cultural landmark in Salzburg. The original site, Rupertinum, opened in 1983 in the Old Town and houses Austrian modern and contemporary art, including a significant graphic collection. The second location, opened in 2004 on Mönchsberg, offers spectacular views of Salzburg and features changing exhibitions of international and Austrian contemporary art, along with classical modernism. This site, designed by architects Friedrich, Hoff, and Zwink, stands out for its minimalist, modernist design and integration into the natural landscape of Mönchsberg.
