Hallstatt Museum Welcome to our time machine!

An exciting journey through time awaits you and your pupils if you decide to book this combo package. You see, when you visit Hallstatt Museum, you also travel back into the Hallstatt of the Stone Age. With a bit of virtual and visual assistance, you will then voyage through different eras of human history until you finally end up in the present day once more.

7000 years is a long time. As you explore the mystical worlds of salt deep below ground, our mine guides will explain to you and your class the importance of mining to the region. Roaming the tunnels and breathing in the smell of the mountain, our guides will also share all kinds of interesting facts about salt mining in Hallstatt.

Later, at the museum in Hallstatt, past millennia will be brought to life. With the help of unique exhibits from different eras and 26 different themes, you will be introduced to 7000 years of cultural and human history. The “Era Workshop” and “Museum Rally” were both developed especially with children and teens in mind. In the “Era Workshop”, students are provided with practical means to reimagine and recreate what they have just seen in the exhibition. The “Museum Rally” is also a highlight, allowing students in groups of two or three to explore different themes independently, then present what they have learned during a tour of the museum with the full group .
