Celtic Museum in Hallein
The Celtic Museum in Hallein is famous as one of the biggest museums for Celtic history in Europe. Aside from focusing on Celtic culture, the museum also presents exhibits which document the history both of Salzburg as well as Hallein.
This museum’s exhibits, which illustrate Ice Age burial sites, areas of ancient settlement as well as salt mining on the Dürrnberg, are unique in all of Europe. The absolute star of the show is a 2500-year-old Celtic beaked jug. Furthermore, three rooms grant us insights into the world of the prince-archbishops, while other objects teach us even more about the history of Hallein and salt mining in the region.
Good to Know
Special events and educational programs for all age groups make a visit to the Celtic Museum in Hallein a truly astonishing and memorable experience, especially for school children and kindergarteners. At the top of the list for young explorers is the new museum laboratory. If you want to learn more about the Celts, we suggest buying a “Salzwelten” combo ticket, which will then also allow you to visit the nearby Hallein Salt Mine as well as Salina Celtic Village, both on the Dürrnberg.
