Glauberg is a very special place that was inhabited by mankind as far back as the Neolithic Age. Excavations from three Celtic tombs from the 5th century BC and the statue of a Celtic ruler found here are unique, and are recognised throughout the world as an archaeological sensation.
The museum is part of the Celtic World at the Glauberg, which also houses a research centre and a large archaeological park. In the park there is a reconstruction of a burial mound, a mysterious system of banks and ditches, and fortifications from the early Celtic period. Remains from other historical periods can be found on the Glauberg plateau.
