The twenty minute tour and time exploring and learning about the process of how the salt is collected is excellent. The family history is amazing and meeting the grandson, who gives the tour was a pleasure. Highly recommended!!

If you have not seen how sea salt is farmed or mined, this is a great place to visit. While the museum is small, it is chuck full of interesting facts and history of this process.

I chose to visit this museum, because of constant publicity - not because I had any interest in salt, or salt production. But it turned out to be a truly nice experience. The serenity of this place, coupled with a "different" museum, as we know...More
