  • Intresting to know the past and importance of the salt. You can see how the sea salt is yielded. A good distraction from daily routine.  more »
  • You park and walk past a mud bathing area. Couldn't tempt my lot. Locals seemed to enjoy. You see the salt flats and pans, and mounds of drying salt. The museum is small, interesting photos and models...  more »

  • The museum is tiny inside, in fact it's one room half full with chairs to watch the video and there are some showcases and ustensils along the walls and at the backside. I admit beeing deceived. The film was in EN and we were asked in when it was half over. Anyway the kids did not yet learn EN in school. When the film was over we tried to see the exposed items, but doing this, a whole bus full of tourists were watching the film and we visibly disturbed them by moving around. Outside there is no explication at all, you see some salt bassins, but nobody to show you around. In less than 30 minutes we were finished with the visit and I wondered why I had planned a day trip to Pomorie.
  • At the time white gold was hard labour. Nowadays salt is common as any other thing we eat. For me it was more interesting to watch nearby people covered with mud trying to heal themselves. As I know there are restrictions for people with cardiovascular problems and so if they are doing it under doctor supervision it's OK. But I doubt that.
  • Not impressive
  • The museum itself bullshit. Room 3 * 4:3 plakatika, 4 photos. The ticket costs 3 LV. But the mud baths are free of charge. Heaps of people izmazanyh mud. Izmazalsâ, obsoh, smylâ ... Lâpota! For free ...! Close to the sea. Clean sand, breakwaters. The sea is clean. In the Museum you can not walk. Posmotriš in a circle, and so everything is clear. Children can at least explain what and why.

  • Dirt, guys! A hefty mud! There are showers, but closed. Dirt is washed off reluctantly. The smell of knock down with legs. Worth a visit, cool place
