Meet the Celts, experience pre-history, feel city history!
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 and Hallein.
The highlights 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 can. 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.
