In the winter, not much is open in Hallstatt, but this museum helped me learn a lot more about the history. It is very informative, using various mediums (videos, texts, models). Even more cool is the things on display (swords, gold, etc) and that the info is in verious languages (mostly German and English) A must see!!

I recommend a hour or two visit here because the history of this area is interesting and your visit isn't complete until you know more about it. It's well done and exceeded my expectations.

We went there only because it was raining and we wanted to spend an hour other than eating. The place was clean and tidy. If you are very into history, then it may interest you more. For us, we just looked at different items casually. We are the only two or three people there.

I wasn't aware of this museum and just happened to walk past it (not hard to do as Hallstatt is very small). I spent a very enjoyable hour here and could easily have made it two. You are directed through the museum and there are 26 stations. The displays are in German however each station has translations into a number... More

We were really looking forward to visiting the museum, it was actually how we learned about Hallstatt in the first place. Although the signs all said open and we went on the days and times it said it was open it was actually closed, as was the rest of Hallstatt!

The museum was not originally on our list but we ended up going there because of rain and we realized it is actually an world heritage museum and it was fantastic! It tells the salt mining history of the place very very well and it was very informative!

Very old artifacts and a detailed history of one of the oldest villages in Europe is on display in the museum. A great activity for a rainy day in Hallstatt to be sure

The BBC is currently running a series called 'The Celts: Blood Iron & sacrifice ' and this museum Is mentioned in it . Our visit was fascinating and we were delighted to see that most of the exhibits had their information translated into English . This museum holds a hugely important collection of Celtic artefacts and time to browse around... More

Very well maintained Meseum. 3D show is really good. Brings you to the important history of Hallstatt. Really worth full for the euros spend. If its a rainy day and you feel bored you should go here.

This museum was very well done, as others have said. You didn't have to do a lot of reading unless you wanted to get deeper into the history of the area. They used various ways to exhibit including computer slides, etc. The artifacts were interesting and not over whelming quantity-wise. We spent 90 minutes before they closed and that was... More
