The Museum of Hallstatt tells the history of the region, beginning in 7000 BCE and reaching the current day.

It does so through exhibits of archaeological artifacts uncovered at excavation sites in the region (some of the findings can also be seen at the Natural History Museum in Vienna). The most important part of the region’s history is its relationship with salt mining, which the museum explains in detail. In our opinion, the highlights of the museum were the interactive videos that accompany each exhibition, some of which are even 3D.
