Museum "Ores, gold and minerals" in Hüttau

They belong together: The Larzenbach show mine and the "Ore, Gold and Minerals" museum in Hüttau, housed in the former Gewerkenhaus in the town centre. This was the home of the former operators of the copper mine dating back to 1594. The museum houses a large display collection compiled by former miner Rainer Mrazek. As a mineral collector and idealist for decades, he was the founder of the museum and also the driving force behind the restoration and opening of the copper mine as a show mine.

Seelacken Museum in St. Veit im Pongau

The Seelacken Museum in St. Veit im Pongau is housed in the former Wallnerbauernhaus. Built in 1738, the Wallnerbauernhaus from Schwarzach was demolished in 1988 and rebuilt true to the original at its current location. It is now used as a museum, meeting place and event venue. Together with the Troadkasten, baking oven and a school garden, the result is an ensemble well worth seeing. The exhibition focuses on folk culture, mining and archaeology, literature, agriculture and ever-changing special exhibitions.
