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

We had a lovely time walking through the Hallstatt museum. The museum starts with the beginning of life in this area (a long time ago) and continues to present day. Very interesting hour or so!

There is a long history of people mining salt in Hallstadtt. This museum makes that history easy to understand. Just think, when Israel was captive in Egypt, people were mining in Hallstadtt.

We arrived here just 40 mins before closing so we rushed around a bit, but this is a top museum and well worth making time to see. It meanders through 20 or so rooms and has some excellent display, some of which are interactive. Hallstatt has some fascinating history, all told in this museum. It is very well laid out... More
