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

We probably would not have gone to this museum if it hadn't been recommended in one of Rick Steves' travel guides. Small town museums are usually not that good and who wants to be inside a museum when visiting beautiful Hallstatt? What a surprise! Excellent museum, well thought out and well laid out. Very interesting history of the town and... More

We were surprised by how well this museum is setup. We assumed that it would be hokey displays, as is usually the case with small town museums. The displays were informative and modern, it was interesting to learn about the evolution of the town and its people.

With the stunning views and peaceful environment, it surprised me that this museum was the highlight of the visit. Takes you on a trip through the fascinating of this small but important Austrian town. Information is available in many languages and a generally very entertaining museum. And it's pretty cheap too.
