The museum in the village in Molln, built in 1998, offers insights into the history of the community and the region on 400m² of exhibition space with various thematic focuses. Interesting facts about the unique Molln Jew's harp makers, rare arched woodworking trades, iron and aluminium processing and the history of the "Dachstein" sports shoe factory can be found here.
