Museum Hallstatt, Hallstatt

4.2
The Hallstatt Museum, or Museum Hallstatt, is a museum in Hallstatt, Upper Austria, that has an unrivalled collection of discoveries from the local salt mines and from the cemeteries of Iron Age date near to the mines, which have made Hallstatt the type site for the important Hallstatt culture. The museum is close the Hallstattersee, below the salt mines on the mountainside. The museum, the salt mines, and the Dachstein Ice Cave are designated as an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Since 2002 the museum has occupied the former Hallstatt parsonage, and the previous holdings of the museum have been reunited with many of the objects which had previously been on display at the Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna.

  • Instead of foolishly going to the "Disney"-a-la-la salt mine, take the time to visit this monographic and complete museum that will teach you a thousand times that slide downhill.

  • The Harerstadt Museum naturally has a history of introducing the small city, the location is easy, because the basic scenery is good concentration, along the shore straight road can be close to all the major scenic spots.

  • A very good, interactive museum with a lot of history to tell. We've learned a lot about the history of salt production since very remote times. It's big and very informative. I recommend you all a visit.
