This museum was fun with interactive, life size exhibits with very detailed historical accounts of the days when Syracuse produced salt. On a hot day they open both doors and have lots of air flow. The museum guide was very knowledgeable.

Great history of Syracuse being a salt producer, some canal info., fun for kids too, interactive, short movie, lots of visual life size exhibits and fairly priced little store.

There is a lot of information here about the history of salt mining and the importance of salt to early residents as well as up to today. It was well worth the time. Really better than expected. I recommend it to anyone that enjoys history.

The Salt Museum doesn't look like the picture. The building should reflect the early American period but the maintenance, air quality and ergonomic considerations leaves much to be desired. There is great information here and the displays are relevant and educational but the space reminds...More

This is a great museum depicting the Salt Era, multiple displays of interest! Fun and interesting for all ages! Walk back thru time when Salt was mined and transported right here in Syracuse on Onondaga Lake via the Erie Canal!

This museum is small, free, and VERY interesting. It describes the history of the salt industry in Syracuse, NY -- which gave the city the name "Salt City." This is an important piece of history that we don't learn about in our school history classes....More

This is a free, small museum about the salt industry that was key to the area's history. Very interesting. Also, the museum is located within a beautiful and large park along the lake. Well worth the stop.
