For a museum that was free of charge, the exhibition is well laid out and interesting. From millions of year old fossils through the Stone Age to the fascinating history of the salt trade times. Worth a visit and go right to the top of...More

This museum, although free entry, obviously caters for English speaking visitors. Most exhibits have a placard in English "Do not touch" Sadly this is as far as the English goes-everthing is only labelled in German-making it impossible to understand unless you speak German well.

Exhibits from the earliest days of the town, some of them in a building that dates in part from the eleventh century. The town prospered on salt, which welled up in these parts. Detailed models show how the town grew, and record destructive fires. Remarkable...More

Possibly the best museum in the area I think. Really well laid out, very informative and varied. The room with the Nazi memorabilia was well done. Not easy to do without looking to romanticise the period. The sympathetic exhibition to the terrible atrocities and in...More

I don't know how people with mobility issues would get around because this museum took up several levels. It was fascinating, covering many parts of history, from geological exhibits to world war items. The theatre display was amazing.
