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....

We had no great expectations of Hallstatt. We took the local bus from Salzburg to Bad Ischl and then after coffee and a snack the connecting train to Hallstat. We managed one ticket from Salzburg to Hallstat for both journeys so ask when you board the bus in Mirabellplatz. The station at Hallstat is on the opposite side of Hallstat... More

This is my second review of the Museum which normally I hightly recommend. However this time we visited with a disabled friend who is wheelchair bound outdoors but can manage to walk slowly with the aid of two sticks. He struggled to get around the museum. An investment in stannah stair lifts would make all the difference. He loved his... More

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
