This is a small little museum but packs a big punch. The family gives you a narrated tour of the museum and salt harvesting process. You definitely come away understanding the work that goes into the salt harvesting process. It is worth the stop and...More

The museum person gave us a 45 minute talk for 3 E each, it was quite fascinating. I understand that the prime time to visit is in August, during the salt harvest. We visited in November and still enjoyed it.
