This is one of the best museums I have visited, it is very well laid out, great exhibitions and lots of imaginative, and interactive displays.The displays also have English translations so that is useful if you don't speak German. You can also get a discount for the lovely boat trips, so very good value for money.

We might not have ventured into the museum if the weather had been fine - but, in that case, we would have missed an excellent museum. We checked that there was English explanation as well as German so that we would get the most out of it and were told Yes, English included. The way the museum is laid out... More

really nicely made and shows very much history. Did not believe how much history there is in such a small town but this museum really shows it very nicely and also in a fun, very understandable and great way.

The rain hit us on our trip so we decided to go explore the Hallstatt museum. It was 8 euro entry and contained many findings from the salt mines, from burials and roman remains. I have to be honest, I found it quite boring, everything was a bit bland. Did cater well for English speakers though.

A well laid out and interesting museum. A wide range of languages were catered for in the written material, and there were plenty of interactive exhibits. It's not cheap, but is worth it, especially if you are curious why on Earth Hallstatt is a World Heritage site.

Who would expect so much history in this one little lakeside Austrian town. This museum was excellent, and very well done, and well worth the nominal entrance fee. When visiting Hallstat, make the time to visit this museum. It really gives historical context to the whole visit.

We didn't expect all that much from a museum about salt mining in a small town. What a surprise! It's well-done and full of information with interactive exhibits that should put many big-city museums to shame. Fortunately, we went the day before our tour of the salt mine, so we were well-prepared for what we saw the next day. We... More
