I have some words for this precious place in F. da Foz. This museum, which is located between the salt production fields, sheds light on the history of salt production in the region. Here you can get information by watching animated movies about how salt is produced and listening to the museum official, you can examine old production tools and photos. There is also a small shopping section in the museum and you can buy salt from here. After leaving the museum - depending on the season you go - you can take a stroll through the salt fields. If you go to F.da Foz, you should definitely go to this museum which give importance to effort and sacrifice..

This place was further out of town than we initially thought but worth the drive - bit hard to park as the road is very narrow. The lady running the site is charming and speaks excellent English - and she knew lots. She talked us through part of the museum then left us to watch the video. I have oftern seen the salt pans but had no idea of the process before. Very interesting. We also saw the salt warehouse and the pans themselves. Lots of wildlife around. And we bought a ridiculous amount of salt!

Interesting place to visit. Video was interesting although too long and boring for young children. We bought a souvenir salt basket... who would have thought that there is liquid salt available? We then went to put our feet in the salty water. There was a lady also selling some face/body products, which if sufficient members of staff on site, you might get a feet rub.

It never opens at the right time, sometimes people just don't show up
It costs 1 euro and it is interesting to visit it, if it is open which is random
The "rotas" around it are a trap, badly signed , missing boards and indications and you may get lost.
They also sell some products, rather expensive.
It is not easy to find this place, and even asking the locals it took us quite a while

This was a little difficult to find but we were glad we persevered. We have been to other salt-producing places before and always find something of interest. We were a bit disappointed to find the visitor centre was closed as the website seemed to indicate it would be open. However, we enjoyed the walk around and saw a flock of flamingos and a pair of stilts so it was even better than we had hoped.

This is a cute, little museum showing the production of salt. It's interesting and worth a short visit if you're nearby. But a taxi from Figueira da Foz cost 15 euroes in each direction, so it's really only worth visiting if you have a car.

Inside, there is one person working there. Visitors seem pretty rare. She did a great job explaining in English the history and methodology of taking the sea water into inland channels, evaporating the water in stages to leave salt. There is a nice 4 km walk through the salt flats, and they provide binoculars to view the birds that make them their home.

Sadly the museum was closed when we visited the place, but you could still walk around the area and learn from the infomation boards about the salt producing process. A nice place to visit and do learn some facts when the sun in shining.

You will need a car to get to this location. Drive over the bridge and follow the signs. On the other side of the bridge you turn left at the roundabout then drive a further 2-3 kms, then turn right at some shops (signed) and drive out a little dirt road for about 1km.
We arrived
about 1pm and there wa s already a tour underway. The next tour was not till 2.30. However the lady gave us heaps of information about the process to make salt. I don't think that should would normally do this, but she said we were from so far away (Australia) that she wanted to tell us about it. She spoke excellent English.

It is the place where they win salt from the sea water, on a natural way.
This place is located in “LAVOS” on about 12 km from the centre of Figueira-da-Foz.
When you leave the centre, see to get on the great bridge, once on the end you have a roundabout, and from there on the Salt Museum is signposted, just follow the signs.
After a few km, you will see the sign on your left, turn into the narrow street, and continue on this street for about 1 km, you will have a small river on your left, and the museum is on your right.
It is small, you will have a friendly guide and a very friendly lady who is the responsible from the plant and the salt winning who will explain you the whole winning process, from the moment that the sea water enters into the Mondego River, and leaded trough pipes and canals into the beds were it becomes salt.
After an explanation, you will have a video and then you can walk around and also see the place where they stock the salt.
This is a very recommendable place, who shows you were salt is coming from, and the labour who is needed to get it.
It is back to nature, with many people to continue the art of salt winning, after the visit you also can taste the salt, ad buy some if you want to.
Very interesting location and place to visit.
