This museum was founded in 1932 and is one of the oldest of its kind in Upper Austria.
The highlights of the collection are presented in two rooms on the second floor of the castle. They shed light on the eventful 1000-year history of the old Danube market and its economic development.

Since its modernisation in summer 2019, the exhibition in Room 1 has become the starting point for a contemporary exploration of the concept of "Heimat" and has thus achieved supra-regional significance.
The second room is dedicated to the economic development of the town:
The Danube as a transport route, salt as a commodity and the granite deposits had a lasting impact on the history of Mauthausen.
Interesting exhibits and beautiful model replicas (e.g. ship train and ship mill) take visitors back to a bygone era.

Since the modernisation in summer 2019, a modern, multilingual audio guide system (DE, EN, IT, CZ, children's track) has been used to convey knowledge in both castle museums (local history museum and pharmacy museum), but personal guided tours are also offered for groups.
