Salzburg Museum

Salzburg, Austria

The magnificent New Residence (Neuen Residenz) on Mozart Square has housed the Salzburg Museum since the summer of 2007. Salzburg Museum is the museum of artistic and cultural history for the city and region. 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 was founded in 1834 when a small collection of military memorabilia was made accessible to the public to formalize the memories of the Napoleonic wars. After the revolution in 1848, the collection became the official town museum of Salzburg.

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.

lovely museum, sadly their online presence is a little weak, as it isn't really clear whats on display. visited and looked forward to Makart paintings, only to find out that the floor they're on, is currently not open to visitors. Left a little disappointed, however the Festspiele exhibition is quite nice and I do think their prices are fair.

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.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
