The State Museum of Prehistory Halle (Saale) is one of the most important archaeological museums in Central Europe. Its exhibitions are an extraordinary experience and convey the latest research in superb pictures and stories.

In addition to the famous Nebra Sky Disc, countless other objects of international importance captivate. Each piece occupies its special place in the cultural history of humankind and makes a visit to the museum a lively journey into our past.

Eleven thematic exhibition sections lead you through some 400,000 years of human history – from the beginning of the Stone Age to the Early Modern Times.
