Locations & Facilities

Two buildings provide the Museum der Moderne Salzburg with extensive exhibition space on a total of six levels. In 1983, the Rupertinum, an early Baroque building in the heart of Salzburg's Old Town, was opened. In 2004, the second location on the Mönchsberg followed. The Rupertinum houses the Generali Foundation Study Center as well as the libraries of the Generali Foundation and the Museum der Moderne Salzburg.

The former water tower on the Mönchsberg was reopened after renovation work in 2014 as the Amalie Redlich Tower with offices, workshop rooms and an artist's apartment. Since 2017, the museum's art depot has been located in Guggenthal (municipality of Koppl), not far from the city of Salzburg.
