Hard to find on GPS. Quite a way out of the way. It is free and only a few exhibit items in a very small building made of Salt. Good movie and nice docent. Cannot tour the salt mines. Kids would be bored

Took my six year old son and he loved it. He liked licking the salt wall. The woman that was working there was very informative about salt.
