“The Real Key Disc!”

Landesmuseum fuer Vorgeschichte
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 December 2016

The authentic Sky Disc of Nebra lives here at the Landesmuseum für Vorgeschichte ( Halle State Museum of Prehistory )

This museum is filled with ancient burial pits and narratives around how various ancient peoples lived, worked and took care of their dead

And in a small room on the second floor, is the Sky Disc and the story of how it was found, looted & stolen and eventually recovered.

Lots of jewelry and weapons on display, the building is easy to get around and setup sight beside a lovely park with lots of shady trees - many people outside enjoying picnics

It was the perfect ending to our archaeological adventure to see the real Sky Disc, after learning about its discovery and a much richer history at the planetarium / museum, at the Arche Nebra in Nebra

One of the best museum I've been to. Don't miss it. A special is the Himmelsscheibe von Nebra, alone this is worth the visit!

We took the audio guide through the exhibits and it was definitely worth it! There was actually an overwhelming amount of information available as we quickly realized... We went quite slowly through the first rooms with artifacts and exhibits from some of the earliest known settlements in Europe. Everything is really well done and extensive, with lots of additional information on specific topics available in the audio guide if you wish. The museum currently takes you up to the iron age, but the audio guide information is not as extensive later on. Nevertheless, the displays are very well done. Finally, the Nebra sky disc is obviously the highlight and is very beautifully displayed. Definitely worth checking out in Halle.

This museum is a must if you are interest in pre-historical displays and exhibits. I loved loved loved it, especially of course the "star" of the museum, the real Nebra sky disc.

This museum is amazing! Im not normally a fan of pre-history but the exhibitions here are excellent. As well as being visually interesting they provide an easy to follow timeline for the evolution of early man. The Nebra Sky Disc (google it) is an absolute treasure, and the story behind its discovery is really interesting. The "Krieg" special exhibit was very thought provoking; asking deep questions such as whether man is predisposed to warfare, and when did organised battles begin in our history.

Photography is not allowed inside the museum.

The cafe is fantastic! I recommend the strawberry cake (Erdbeer kuchen) and pasties (pastete). Most of the signage in the exhibits is in German, but you can pick up an audioguide for a small fee. The audioguide is detailed, but doesnt drone on and on, which makes a nice change.
