Welcome to our Caves Museum!
The Dachstein Cave Museum is not only one of Upper Austria´s most interesting museums, it also has a very unusual location.
The museum is situated at 1350 meters above sea level close to the middle station of the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car. The main focus of the museum is the exploration of the Dachstein Caves. Amongst the most popular exhibits is a model of the Mammoth Cave and the 48 kilometers of tunnels explored so far.
