The Mineral Museum in Wald was created by Kurt Nowak, a dedicated mineral collector. The museum presents complete mineral communities from the Salzburg region of Hohe Tauern National Park. That said, the hundreds of exhibits also feature some from the Zillertal Alps. To provide a better overview, the various minerals are arranged and categorized by the valleys in which they were discovered.
Aside from simply being able to browse Kurt Nowak's continually expanding collection, Wald Mineral Museum also presents fascinating scientific information as well as numerous illustrations of where they were found, the landscapes, as well as the often strength-sapping and occasionally dangerous work that goes into recovering crystals.
