This museum focuses on the Hallstatt Era, which was from 800 BC to 400 BC, and the long-term impacts of this period on the area. There is quite a bit of multimedia, but the vast majority of the displays are meant to be read. The wall displays are primarily in German, but they have some English descriptions mounted and many displays have books with multiple languages represented. This is not an interactive place and there isn't really anything to touch, so kids will certainly be bored quickly. I found the 10 Euro price to be a bit steep, and others must as well as we had the museum entirely to ourselves. That said, I did learn a lot about the city, salt mines, and cultural impact visitors have had on the area. There are many items removed from the mines and graves of the nearby necropolis, and they illustrate pretty well how people lived in the past in Hallstatt.

All in all, if you are a museum person or are really interested in Hallstatt's past, you will probably really like it. If neither apply, I'd recommend skipping it.

A very interesting museum about the history of the town from prehistoric to modern times. The last part shows the artefacts from the tombs. Lots of multimedia. Most of the explanations are in German and little is translated but the objects are worth the visit.

If you want to know more about this lovely unesco heritage town, the museum is a good place to start. It gives you a good understanding of Hoe this town comes about, the salt mining including the fire that destroyed quite a bit of the town many years ago. I like Hallstatt lots but it has become rather touristy n commercialized? But on the other hand they do depend a lot on tourism for their revenue too..

This nice but small museum does a fine job of telling the story of salt and mining from prehistoric to roman to medieval to modern times. Explains the importance of Hallstatt culture for cultural anthropology. Good displays.

The museum is rather small but quite interesting. It was very quiet and there were no other visitors at the same time we were there (a lucky coincidence i suppose). The most important part of the exposition, which involves the region and it's history, is of course the Hallstatt Culture and the salt mining. Highly recommend!
