    An interesting museum if you want to get acquainted with the history of salt production. It was good to visit with kids as it is small and it is not time consuming for small kids to familiarize with t...  more »

    Small museum about the history of salt extraction from the sea. Ideal if you want to escape the beach or pool times. It is possible to watch a movie in German.

    I like to go to museums that may appear boring at first hearing what they are about, normally I came away and I am suprised by how interesting the place was. This was not the case with the Museum of S...  more »

    Not very pleasant experience.upon arrival we were ushered to watch a pre-recorded movie about history. The guide was smoking cigarette as he was talking to us. He casually started selling us some salt products and most of his lecture was focused on his sale rather than the history of salt production. I could have watched the same thing on YouTube 🤔

    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.

    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.
