From 4 June 2021 to 9 January 2022, the State Museum of Prehistory Halle (Saale) will show the major state exhibition ›The World of the Nebra Sky Disc – New Horizons‹. We present the research results about the Sky Disc from the past 20 years in a unique combination of natural sciences, archaeology, social theory, and art. New finds and findings from Saxony-Anhalt are supplemented by high-ranking objects, some of which have never been shown in Germany before, from over 50 lenders from 14 countries, and staged in a tried and tested exclusive design. These include, for example, the Mold Gold Cape (Wales), the Golden Hat of Schifferstadt, and rich grave finds from Mycenae. The objects span a period of 1,400 years of human history and illustrate the wealth and diversity of an era that is closer to us today than we previously suspected.
The state exhibition is under the patronage of the Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and was created in cooperation with the British Museum, London.
We offer you an extensive and varied programme to accompany the state exhibition. However, we would like to point out that, depending on the applicable rules as part of the measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus, changes to our events may occur. Please find a constantly updated overview here.
The State Museum of Prehistory and the corresponding locations in Halle, Nebra, Pömmelte, Schönebeck, and Goseck invite you, as part of the state exhibition, to travel back in time into the prehistory of Saxony-Anhalt. Further information on the corresponding locations can be found here.
The exhibition is a collaborative project with the British Museum, London.
The exhibition is financed by funds from the State of Saxony-Anhalt.
We are grateful for funding and support:
