Museum of Modern Art Salzburg Rupertinum
The Rupertinum, located in the historic city center, was first documented in 1350. The "Collegium Rupertinum" served as a school for student priests under Archbishop Paris Lodron. The building was completed in an early baroque style in 1633. Prominently located between the Franciscan and Collegiate Churches, the building served the archdiocese as a seminary for many centuries.
The Rupertinum was used as a student dormitory until 1974. In 1983 the Rupertinum was turned over to the public to serve Salzburg as a museum for modern art and to house a collection of graphic art.
The Rupertinum's rooms were adapted over the years, particularly in 1999, providing outstanding conditions for graphic art and photography.
The Rupertinum presents changing exhibitions of international standing, offering insight into the MdM Salzburg's collection on an area of 700 sqm.
