Small but cozy, hear the lecture to learn what it is about indeed
Jul 2020
Small but cozy museum where you can learn about the traditions in salt production from Lake Pomorie in the past. The exhibitions itself is small with paintings and photos of salt production in the 20th century, as well as vehicles and other objects. Next to the museum there are salt pans where salt is produced by ancient technology which you can visit.
Lectures are offered in Bulgarian and English and the Bulgarian one was quite interesting both for kids and adults.

A quick visit to get out of the heat

Clearly run by a local couple and in a beautiful scenic area, there is so much more that could be done to commercialise this place. However, I enjoyed the simplicity of it. The products sold are good, particularly the massage lye gel for arthritis etc

Useless waist of time and money

Sorry, this looks as one of the places, where the meaning is got out of nothing
It’s not funny, not interesting, small and expensive for that kind of place
Just do for doing
This is personal opinion and does not pretend to be the only one right, but I do not recommend it

Cheap but not a lot going on
Jul 2019 • Family
The museum consists of one room with a TV and a few things to look at.

It was only 3 levs to enter each so very cheap but you wouldn't pay any more anyway. They could make it a lot better by just having someone talking to you and showing you the production rather than making you watch a ten minute monotone video on the production of salt throughout Europe.

The mud baths are also here so I would have thought they'd make the most of that and maybe sell face masks and advertise the mud baths.

The mud baths are good as they're fee. You turn up, dig in to the mud in the water and cover yourself in it. Once it's dry you simply go across the path in to the sea and wash it off. Your skin feels great afterwards!

But the salt museum could definitely do a lot more to attract customers and they should take advantage of the mud baths

Saline waters
Jul 2018 • Couples
We just saw the outside part - the saline waters. They attract some birds (avocets seem to be nesting on small islets). They also attract some citizens who come to bath in the saline mud. Maybe it has healing properties?

Worth a visit for something different to do!
May 2019 • Couples
Please be aware that this museum is not an English speakers idea of a museum perhaps these types of establishments are common in Bulgaria but I do not know for certain. It costs 3 Leva (approx €1.50) to enter the museum which is quite reasonable . However, upon entering you will walk into a medium sized room with the equipment for salt extraction inside. Me and my boyfriend were shown a 13 minute long video in English about salt extraction in Europe. The “guide” did not speak English to us. But the signs around the room were in English so it was fine. There are goods that are available to purchase in the room such as salt, face masks using the salt, toothpaste etc. I do think that if you are staying in the Pomorie area that it is definitely worth a visit to the museum and the lake but in my opinion it was not entirely worth traveling from Sunny Beach to see the Salt Museum. 😊☀️

Almost nothing to see

A room with different tools for salt extraction. Nothing interesting to remember.
After we paid 3 leva/ adult you receive 2 printed pages in english with details
my opinion is no go, waste of time

Wonderful history
Jun 2018 • Couples
When we visited the salt museum we didn't expect to see tha fabulous wild birds some very rare breeding on the lakes. We watched a video on the history of salt mines going back hundreds of years. In the lakes black mud is collected stated to be very good healing properties for all sorts of ailments.

Murky salts

We visited this place and it is a short walk from the hotel we stayed in. You can bathe in the mud there, but we did not partake as it smelt disgusting and put me off, but there were plaenty of other people doing it.
