History

 
1972museum created by the Kulturabteilung des Amtes der NÖ Landesregierung.

Description

The Höhlenmuseum Eisensteinhöhle (Cave Museum Eisensteinhöhle) is a small speleologic museum, located at the entrance of the Eisensteinhöhle. This is at the slopes of the Fischauer Berge, a mountain range near Brunn. The museum was primarly created as an information center for the cave. It contains maps, surveys, photographs and documents. Gear of the cave explores document the history of the exploration. This exhibition is completed by an overview of the geology and the fauna and flora of the area.

The museum was created by Kulturabteilung des Amtes der NÖ Landesregierung, the culture section of the government of Niederösterreich. It is now maintained by the section Allzeit getreu of the Österreichischer Alpenverein (Austrian Mountaineering Club). The cave is not really a show cave, the tours are rather rough, and it is open only two weekends per month. Thus the museum has a great importance in informing the visitors at other times.
