Well worth the few Euro's admission cost

It is a very well appointed museum for its size, with a lot of history of not just Hallstatt, but the local region

We visited this museum yesterday first thing. It was extremely well done with a variety of interesting exhibits...neither too long nor too short. They give a very good history and explanation of why the region exits. Who knew this much about the importance of salt!

This museum does an excellent job telling the history of Hallstatt -- and there is a lot to tell. It is well worth the small admission price and the museum is much larger than it appears from outside. Very interesting holdings from prehistoric to the present.

This small yet comprehensive history museum was delightful and quite interesting. It becomes very clear why Hallstatt is a UNESCO World Heritage site after taking the time to tour this museum.

Excellent information on the history of Hallstatt from its Roman beginnings as a salt mine to its modern day setting. Great placards and well organized.

This Place gave us a good overview of Hallstatt and the surrounding area. Historical, there is much to take in, and the museum does a good job of giving a brief introduction. It was especially nice that all exhibits had options for German and English, with extra information provided in multiple languages (e.g., Italian, Czech, Japanese, Chinese).

This museum led us through the complete history of Hallstatt. The quality of the exhibits was surprising for such a small town. This museum would be interesting for children as well as adults.

TIP: if you are planning on visiting the salt mine and the museum you may want to do the museum first because it gives you a good history of the mine, the tools & some of the clothing of early miners. The museum is much larger than it looks from outside & there are English descriptions for nearly everything, you... More

Not too long and quite interesting also with kids. Celtic figurines, jewelry were our favourite but we learned a lot also about the history of Hallstatt. Check out the internet site- sometimes there are candlelight ship tours combined with museum tickets.
