Handel's House
After extensive restoration and building work, the 16th century house where Georg Friedrich Handel was born became the town's music museum in 1948. In addition to exhibitions relating to the famous composer from Halle, the museum also has collections of historical musical instruments and information about the region's musical history.
Beatles Museum
Housed in the baroque palace (Stadtpalais) on Alter Markt, this museum is dedicated to the legendary rock band from Liverpool. The exhibition documents the life of The Beatles from the time before the band formed until they split, as well as the solo careers of individual band members.
Technisches Halloren- und Salinemuseum
Once the site of the Royal Prussian Saltworks, the museum documents the history of salt extraction through boiling and shows the major role that the salt industry played in this town on the river Saale.
