Deutsches Salzmuseum

German Salt Museum

This is no dusty museum, it’s an exciting place with lots to touch, feel and “grasp”. The museum’s hands-on concept won it the Strasbourg European Council Museum Award in 1991.
The first written reference to the salt works goes back as far as 956. It was shut down in 1980 after operating for over 1000 years. The German Salt Museum is built around the old salt works and the production plant. Up until quite recently, salt was vital for food preservation. The brine pumped from underneath Lüneburg was evaporated in lead pans to leave behind a particularly fine and sought after cooking salt: Lüneburg’s “white gold”. The Salt Museum tells you all about the history of Lüneburg as well as the importance of salt in other cultures around the world. It also explains why salt is a vital ingredient in any number of products.

Residence Museum in the Celle Palace

Celle is one of the most important residence cities in the state of Lower Saxony. For almost three centuries it was the permanent residence of the dukes of Brunswick-Lüneburg and therefore the seat of government in the most significant Guelphs principality.
The palace, surrounded by idyllic half-timbered houses, still bears traces of its time as a medieval seat of power, as a baroque residence until 1705, and as a summer residence for the kings of Hanover in the 19th century.
Come to the Residence Museum and experience history through our modern displays about the castle and those who lived here, and get to know the oldest surviving European royal family, the Guelphs.

Goslar

Tin Figure Museum

In the beautiful historical building of „Lohmühle“ (early 16th century) – set in romantic Klapperhagen – you will find the Goslar-Museum of tin-figures. The museum was founded by a group of sponsors in 1985. Experts and connoisseurs of the scene call it the most beautiful museum of its kind in Germany.

Main subject of interest is the representation of the 1000 years of history of mining as well as the historical events of the region in general. The tin-figures are use as means of demonstration of these events and situations. Through presentation of historical information in the form of diorama (it´s a scene), that depict fragments of characteristic situations, the visitor gets the chance to approach the cultural-historical facts and situations on a “personal” level. On two floors the presentation shows about 100 diorama and more than 10.000 hand painted tin-figures.

Besides the possibility of looking at the tin-figures our museum offers the opportunity to get inside information about the practical part of making the figures at our workshop. Offering the opportunity to make as well as paint a figure by yourself is part of the main concept of the museum. Also for the collector of tin-figures there is a wide range of tin-figures for sale which are partly produced in our own workshop.

Opening hours:

November to March: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
April to October: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
