History Museum Museum
Don't miss a chance to see some of the most important archeological finds of the past century at Landesmuseum fuer Vorgeschichte, featuring exhibits designed to engage and intrigue visitors of all ages. Founded in 1825, the museum contains a collection of nearly 15 million items. The most notable exhibit is the world-famous Nebra sky disk, the world's oldest concrete depiction of cosmic phenomena, which dates to about 1600 BCE. The bronze disk's inlaid symbols are generally interpreted as a sun or full moon, a lunar crescent, and stars. Explore this and many of the museum's other permanent exhibits, which are arranged chronologically from the Stone Age to the Early Bronze Age, on your own or as part of a guided tour. Either way, be sure to see the displays of the ancient Eulau family graves and the Hornhausen rider stele.

  • The four of us are cycled the Unstrut from bad Langensalza. We left out the Museum in NEBRA and took us much time for the Museum. Everyone could stand alone for long on Tue morning at 9: 30 am before the Bills. Impressive! But everything in the Museum was very directly taught to the visitors. 370000 years man at least...

  • A very great and modern designed Museum for fans of prehistory. In addition to many great exhibits, the showpiece is undoubtedly the NEBRA sky disk. The original is well commented and proudly displayed. For a very reasonable amount of EUR 5, you will get here a lot to see.

  • Oldest and most extensive archaeological collection in Germany. World famous through the sky disc of NEBRA. While the Museum sees itself as modern experimental space for all ages as it were for professionals and amateurs. The permanent exhibition is complemented by changing special exhibitions. Either a guide book or rent an audio guide, because you miss but too much trivia. A true experience.

  • The permanent exhibition is very interesting and informative. The many time limited apart from exhibitions which not are. The staff is very nice and can help you. The prices are reasonable for the services believe. Only photos are not allowed which is a shame. Because the exhibition is very nicely designed. Just the sky disk is skilfully set. Way to go!

  • One of the most beautiful and most interesting museums in Europe. Although relatively small, but all areas very interesting decorated down to the detail. Very good explanations and motivated staff. The NEBRA sky disk is a highlight. Definitely worth a visit.
