  • The guy who acts as a guide to the Museum with a very witty and cheerful explained very clearly and comprehensively throughout the cycle of the salt. Alternating jokes in dialect quotes we did spend the duration of the visit so very enjoyable. I think it's very good for children

  • The Museum is located near outside the city and is located among the entire saline pools. Inside is nothing to write home about, tell the story of salt mining, here you can see the tools for the job. Outside these salt mountains, mainly pink on a fairly large area. We were lucky to see a whole flock of flamingos, which have chosen these places. There is a small shop where you can buy different types of salt.

  • The museum has also a very good restaurant. At Evening the area is a paradise for photographers.
  • A small but very interesting museum showing the history and the techniques of salt extraction in Trapani. It's run by a family who works in the salt ponds for generations. The young family member who did the tour in both English and Italian was very knowledgable and 'molto simpatico'. It's also possible to buy salt for a very good price. Highly recommended! Attached to the museum is a nice looking restaurant.
  • Interesting tours in the museum and good view over the salina
  • Cool place, great explications from hosts.
  • Recommend it to anyone walking in the area, to find time to visit the Museum of salt. The cost of the ticket (however modest) is amply repaid by the presentation set up by Alberto, a young member of the family that runs the salina. A fifteen minute presentation full of information, smart and witty allows you to glimpse a world of pain but also of ancient and rich culture.
