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.

Unfriendly staff, only 2 floors of 4 were working and we were not warned about it, also there was another part of the museum to the right from the entrance which was not working as well, and we were not told about that part of the museum at all. It is not worth it compared the money they ask to pay. There were no clear signs throughout the exhibition and that’s why everything looked messy and not related to each other.
The title of the exhibition is not effective for attracting international visitors. Despite translations of panel texts, there's far too much to read and take in, less would have been more.
