Interesting stories about pre-history and salt mining, told partly based on the excavations of ancient graves near the town.
Worth an hour's visit.

When in Hallstatt it is worth visiting this small museum right in the centre, you can’t really miss its doorway, and see exhibits and facts about Hallstatt and its salt mining etc.

Our recent revisit to Hallstatt was a great experience as it's lovely to be back here after our previous visit in 2016 and we were so impressed with this small salt town with beautiful scenery.

The museum, located not far from the main square, has an interesting exhibition and displays that can be traced back thousands of years ago and how then, salt mining was it's main business trade of this town. Though compared to other museums, it's not as big in size, it surely has an wonderful and unique collection that you may find get to see elsewhere.

It's a good and interesting visit and visitors will get to expand their knowledge bank!

To explain a 7000 year old tradition of salt mining, and the various cultures that established in this region over the millenniums can easily make the experience dull and boraing and school like

well this was done tastefully, and the history was explained well without it looking like a class of history at school

all aspects over the 7000 years were explained well

Very informative with facinating artifacts dating back thousands of years. We had no idea the depth of history of this region. Admission was quite reasonable.

Excellent museum with an excellent way of presenting the history of the saltmine and life of the local miners. They walk you through the complete history of 7000 years of mining salt. Very well spent 10 Euros, which isn't much for the experience you get.

This is an excellent display, well interpreted and rich in the details of how very prehistoric the salt mining has been in this fascinating area of the Eastern Alps

To get a more complete understanding of the social and cultural history of the area down through the millenia, it is well worth spending some visit time here.

Modern communication means are used to the full, bringing their daily life closer.

The importance of salt, white gold, is well illustrated with exhibits of tools used for its mining. Numerous artifacts are displayed, demonstrating the developments in peoples' lives.

Ornamental brooches and other personal adornments are fascinating. Burial site finds feature prominently, with swords and axes showing the importance of the person interred.

If you visit Hallstatt a must see is the Museum. The area has been continually inhabited for around 7,000 years and on exhibition are artefacts which tell the Hallstatt story and the Iron Age celtic culture which became known as the Hallstatt Culture.
Exhibits span from the age of Celtic salt miners through the Roman era to the time of the “white gold” salt traders. This is a adventure through time incorporating modern day techniques which bring it all to life. There is a reduced entry for seniors so don’t forget to ask and ENJOY.

This museum near the lakeside, carries a lot of exhibits local to the area, including of course many referring to the well known salt mine. Not always open, so check timings carefully before planning a visit.
