The Hallstatt Museum (German: 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 to the Hallstättersee, 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.Work out when and for how long to visit Museum Hallstatt and other Hallstatt attractions using our handy Hallstatt day trip planning website.

Museum Hallstatt reviews
Interesting stories about pre-history and salt mining, told partly based on the excavations of ancient graves near the town. Worth an hour's visit.
