  • Back from Erice stopped to pay a visit to this small museum and I have to say that the girl who made from guide was very good at making pleasant and understandable "the history of salt". Very interesting.

  • This is not really a museum but a course in saline. Very interesting but must choose the period. In November, no birds, soil soggy. Not too pleasant but in summer it must be great.

  • 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.
