Focusing on the newest interdisciplinary research, the 800 sqm exhibition shows the 7000-year history of salt mining in the Austrian Alps.
Six huge Salt Blocks create an area of discovery and exploration. The outside walls of the blocks provide show cases containing original artefacts and screens. Inside each Salt Block is an Ambient Room, which uses ambient sounds, projections, computer animations, hands on-objects and even fragrances to provide the visitors with a total sensory impression of the life of the prehistoric salt miners.
The salt in the prehistoric mines of Hallstatt preserve all organic objects: a situation that is unique in the world!
After february 2014 the exhibition will be available. We are happy to provide any information that you might need. Please contact Museumspartner
