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.

This is an excellent starting point to grasp Hallstadt & it's history. Much of what you will see in the village is related to & shaped by it's history as explained here, both cultural & geologic. I vaguely remembered the term "Hallstadt Culture" from course work ages ago, but I'm ashamed to say I didn't make the connection with this... More

Excellent overview of the history and geology of the area. Helpful to do before touring the salt mine. I had no idea that the area housed 7000 years of human history or that it had such a rich fossil record. Visiting before our salt mine visit definitely gave us a deeper understanding and appreciation for what we were seeing. Museum... More

It's not fair of me to compare it with other Archaeological Museums, so I will just say: it is indeed interesting. The best part of the exhibits are towards the last rooms, where you will have plenty of time to actually see and photograph the beautiful finds that are shown in the many videos that you are supposed to watch....
