The Industrial Heritage Trail Junior is designed for children and adolescents who want to learn about architecture, craftsmanship, production processes and upcycling in a stimulating and entertaining environment.
The Glauberg is a very special place that was already inhabited by humans during the Neolithic Age. Three Celtic tombs from the 5th century BC and the statue of a Celtic ruler found here are unique and are considered a scientific sensation worldwide.
The museum is part of the Celtic World at Glauberg, which also houses a research centre and a large archaeological park. A reconstructed burial mound, mysterious wall ditch systems and fortifications from the early Celtic era are located here. Other monuments from other historical periods can be found on the Glauberg Plateau.
