Small museum with small entrance fee which explains the history of the place. You can walk freely along the salt fields and take pictures.

We found the museum interesting and we're looking forward to walking around the salt fields only to be told that this was only possible during the tour performed in the morning and afternoon. This was a real shame and frustrating as this wasn't made clear...More

Here is the history and process of how salt was made and processed in Trapani. Its pretty much as you would suspect and might be a cool site if youve never seen salt collection before.

We knew nothing about how sea salt was made but now do and brought some home. Small museum but the personal guided tour (in English) explained it all.

My partner found it fascinating - photography and science-wise. I was more interested in reading a book in the sun, but now I understand more about different grades of salt and which salts are cleaner than others, and what is sustainable in terms of salt...More

Great find whilst driving around Sicily. Its had to believe that they still harvest salt in almost the same way for close to 2000 years around this area. The museum is small but very informative with very helpful staff to explain the processes and stages...More
