The magnificent New Residence on Mozart Square has housed the Salzburg Museum since the summer of 2007. The museum"s fully new concept blends valuable objects of art, aesthetic presentations, interesting facts and multimedia installations into a harmonious whole. The Salzburg Museum is living proof that a modern museum can inform and yet at the same time entertain its visitors. Basement The first special exhibition in the Kunsthalle-an area of 500 square meters-is devoted to Hans Makart (1840-1884). His monumental painting "Spring" takes pride of place in this comprehensive retrospective, which includes more than fifty mostly large-format paintings. First Floor The people who have constantly shaped life in the city and region of Salzburg have not always been the rulers. The exhibition on the first floor shows the lives, works and spheres of influence of interesting Salzburg women and men from the arts, architecture, science, literature, music, photopraphy, handicrafts, trades and the working world. Second Floor The Salzburg Myth The permantent exhibition on the second floor of the Neue Residenz with its resplendent ceremonial rooms highlights the development of Salzburg in history, art and culture since early modern times. The content spans an historical range that includes the absolutist, sovereign prince archbishops, the painters of the Romantic age with their fscinating pictures and panoramas of the Salzburg landscape, and contemporary themes.
