Who knew that this is the site of the world's oldest salt mine? This little museum was quite nice and well worth a visit to understand the ancient history of the area, as well as important anthropologic finds in the ancient salt mines.

This is one of the best museums I have visited, it is very well laid out, great exhibitions and lots of imaginative, and interactive displays.The displays also have English translations so that is useful if you don't speak German. You can also get a discount for the lovely boat trips, so very good value for money.

We might not have ventured into the museum if the weather had been fine - but, in that case, we would have missed an excellent museum.

really nicely made and shows very much history. Did not believe how much history there is in such a small town but this museum really shows it very nicely and also in a fun, very understandable and great way.
