I was recently in Hallstatt and it was a rainy day so we decided to go to the museum; I'm glad we did! We spend a few hours there, they had lots of artifacts (shoes, pieces of clothing, tools) and things they found around the town and in the mines. Interesting exhibits in both English and German. I liked learning... More

Initially it looks like a small museum in a small town with a few artifacts, but in reality it is quite large, with several exhibits of quality, well documented, an audio guide that adds pertienent information. This is a must see museum if you are in the region as you will understand the importance of Hallstatt in the history of... More

When you look from the outside seems like a small museum, but don't be fooled, you're in a city with 7,000 years of history!! The museum is actually quite big, and very, very interesting and informative!!!! There are a lot of very ancient artifacts that were extracted from the mines!!! Besides that, most of the information is written in several... More

This is a good rainy day activity. We found the museum interesting. In places, however, it was difficult to see where to go next, as the lay-out was confusing.

I say 'Wow' because once you've been through it, you cannot believe how much information was in there!! You see the little building you walk into and assume it's just a small museum. There are a lot of exhibits and binders a long the way that provide explanations of exhibits in many languages. The multi-media exhibit about the history of... More

This museum was worth the visit. It takes you through the centuries of this region. With lots of stuff they found exposed. We traveled with two children of 4 and 5 years old. And although it has a short 3D movie it is not really a museum for children of that age. But the entire tour took us just under... More

Lots of great history about the region, and some neat interactive displays that are available in English. Definitely worth an hour, and you can get a small discount if you are staying in Hallstat.

On a whim, we decided to take a quick look through this museum. Too bad we hadn't allocated more time to do so, as it was a very interesting museum regarding the history, mining, etc. of the area. Anyone who enjoys history will find this museum well worth the visit. I would love to go back and spend more time... More
