Salzburg Museum is the museum of artistic and cultural history for the city of Salzburg, Austria. It is located at Mozartplatz, within the Neue Residenz building, within the Old Town, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Salzburg Museum was founded in 1834 by an amateur collector, Maria Vinzenz Süß. It was originally the Provincialmuseum. He donated his collection to Salzburg. The Bavarian Princess Caroline Augusta took over stewardship of the museum in 1850, which is why the museum was also previously known as the Salzburger Museum Carolina-Augusteum.
