Our first day in Hallstatt was overcast and rainy, so we decided to go to the museum which was very interesting. Hallstatt is known for its production of salt, dating back to prehistoric times. It is often linked to Celtic, Proto-Celtic and pre-Illyrian peoples in Early Iron Age Europe, c.800-450 BC. Some of the earliest archaeological evidence for the Celts was found in Hallstatt. The next several posts are photos from inside the museum.
