  • The promenade that leads to the salt pans and then a walk along the waterfront and the mills that svettono seems to be in a country where time has stopped. The cost of souvenirs is exaggerated, even of just salt. Definitely experience for visitors in Marsala

  • I never imagined, the beauty of salt on a day when it was not possible to go to the beach. Sometimes laziness does tricks ... I didn't think it was worth it. And instead was a visit interessantissima...il place is very impressive, salt creates a show at the sight ... Museum staff explained in simple terms, processing, the sacrifice of the work carried out with determination by his ancestors ... and the rescue of the new generation committed to all round the field. Everything is worth a visit and creates awareness ... now at the supermarket I try the sea salt of Trapani!

  • visit interesting and helpful, we followed the guide who explained the whole process of saline, delighting children with amusing anecdotes. A fun way to spend a couple of hours, being able to take some beautiful photos: the landscape truly deserves!

  • Quaint and interesting museum that details the salt collecting process. Restaurant on site with fresh sea food. You can purchase salt there as well and are allowed to walk amongst the pools and observe the process first hand.
  • A little treat of a museum. Not very big at all but €2.50 buys you entrance and a little guided tour (in italian- enquire about English). Tales of Phoenician occupation and the science behind the saline and what makes good salt makes this a good stop.
  • Lovely wee museum with great views. Saw some flamingos too.
  • great little tour and explanation of the salt business through history.
  • The museum has also a very good restaurant. At Evening the area is a paradise for photographers.
