We read in a newspaper article that the Museum runs guided tours so we went along and participated. Visitors only pay the entry fee of 2 Euro each to take part. The tour was given in Italian language by a gentleman who was a former worker at the salt pans. The speaker was very informative on the history of Cervia which in effect started with the salt pans; development of the walled town which originally was where the salt pans are located, why salt was such a valuable commodity back then (they had guards every 20 metres), how it was a "government controlled" product and originally only sold in Sali e Tabacchi shops. Of course now you can buy salt in supermarkets, deli shops, etc.
The speaker took us through the museum's various displays including maps, a huge salt carrying boat, equipment such as scales etc. To finish the evening, an archeologist spoke about the finds in various sites and the importance of the town, in particular referring to Ravenna's importance during the early days.
Souvenirs are for sale, as well as small sacks of Cervia's salt from the only manually worked pan left, all run by volunteers.

The museum shows how the Cervià town lived of salt for centuries. The most interesting are the demo-tapes that show how was the town two hundred years ago.

It's worth stopping into if you're already in Cervia. A museum that's worth going out of your way to see, I dug the wooden rustic atmosphere here. Really cool to learn about all the history of the area too...and it's free!

Over a year on from its last review, I'm pleased to report that the Museum of Salt is now bilingual with English texts.

Still free entry and a small donation will see you rewarded with a kilo of their salt (technically making you a profit for visiting)

Check the opening times as they are variable according to the day and month.

We wished for english signage but the exhibits speak for themselves. Very well done. It helped us understand how deep the history of that area is and how different the land is now from 500+ years ago. Since we happened to be there on a Sunday evening, we even received a free bag of salt (donation encouraged)!

Small free museum tells the story of salt production in Cervia. Interesting. Not much English, but we learned some things from the pictures and exhibits.

We chanced on cervia on our way to rimini and were surprised of it's beauty. When we spotted the salt museum we had to go in as we had been to one in Britain. It was easy to work out how the system worked and what the exhibits were about. The place is well run and immaculate, the building it is house in held 20000 tonnes of salt in it's day.
