Hall in Tirol Mining Museum

Hall in Tirol

What was a day in the life of a miner really like? Come to the Hall Mining Museum and find out in a replica of a Halltal Valley Salt Mine where virtually everything is exactly as it was left in the year 1967. Take a trip back in time to see how salt was mined in the valley for 800 years. The former Schmalzwaage Building, the storehouse of the salt works, today houses this noteworthy museum, created by historians who recognized the importance of preserving and presenting the Hall salt story to the public. Tours are given of the reconstructed salt mine, complete with pits, shafts, drills, tools, and — the climax of any salt mine tour — the slippery wooden slide. It feels like a real mine. Afterwards, take a stroll around Hall, the beautiful medieval town that grew important on the riches of salt in the Middle Ages.
