An internationally recognized art museum for everyone – with its finger on the pulse of time, and for a diverse society.

Mission Statement

The Museum der Moderne Salzburg collects, preserves, studies, displays, and communicates the art of the 20th and 21st centuries. The Museum is a dynamic, cultural forum at the heart of Europe, with international appeal and significance. It cultivates an interdisciplinary dialog between the arts. With its two locations – on the Mönchsberg and in the Rupertinum in the old town – it sees itself as a meeting place and a venue for discussions.

The Museum der Moderne Salzburg is a major player on the contemporary art scene, discussing issues that are topical and socially relevant. It is committed to a diverse, inclusive society, and sees art as a medium of knowledge and change. It breaks down barriers and communicates art through diverse approaches. It has an inclusive policy towards its visitors, enabling them to participate and experience art in an active manner.

The Museum der Moderne Salzburg is committed to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and shares the international community’s vision of a good future for all human beings.


As part of a comprehensive digitization process, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg is implementing measures that will make the museum experience the best possible for its visitors, providing barrier-free, international access to museum education for our target groups. Internal workflows will be optimized, and the collections for which the Museum is responsible will be made digitally accessible.
