Not easy to find but enjoyed the museum tour, the food was a bit on the expensive side but enjoyable none the less.

We visited in april 2017. Magnificent views on the town of Trapani, the sea and the saltpans. Visit in the museum alows you to go up on the roof to see the windmill up close and gives an overview on the region.

Interesting place, very nice and friendly explanation. To see that the work is actually still done, adds a lot to the experience.

A small place, but the presentation was absorbing and informative. 3€ per person and took about 30 minutes then you're free to walk around the area and of course, to buy some salt!

This was a very interesting side trip from nearby Trapani. The ancient method of harvesting sea salt is fascinating and the small gift shop offers many options for buying flavired salts. I purchased the lemon flavored salt and boy is a it good on fish!

We entered without much expectations and left with a very good experience. The guide explained in detail the technique of salt production and every detail was really interesting. Highly recommended for everybody.

no, I don't think public transport is coming there. Taxi"s are not that common in Sicily, rent a car. It is the best way to visit Sicily

Hi Carla F, As far as I know, it is open everyday, especially now that it has finished renovations and the busy season approaching. It is quite famous so I'm confident that it will be open. "Even" if it is closed, you can... More
