Mining Museum Hall in Tirol

In the heart of the old town of Hall in Tirol the Mining Museum offers an underground journey.

In the Fürstengasse alley in the old town of Hall in Tirol an interesting mining museum, the Bergbaumuseum Hall in Tirol, awaits young and old. It is located in the so-called "Schmalzwaage", where the goods were stored, which were a part of the miners' salary in former times.

The Mining Museum Hall in Tirol is a replication of a tunnel of the salt mine in the Halltal valley which was closed 50 years ago after a 800-year-long use. Here you really have the feeling to be underground! Salt has always been important in the history of Hall in Tirol, it helped to found the town in 1303 and for the boom and wealth in the following centuries.

This can still be seen in the old town with its beautiful houses. In the mining museum ancient work tools and mine lamps are exhibited which document the hard life of the miners through the centuries. Also various shafts and minerals are shown within a guided tour. Best-liked is the sliding on the wooden track which took the miners to the various floors in former times...
