Unkempt and littered all over, we left after 5 minutes. Photo opps from the roads are better than the museum.
We were given a guided tour of the museum in English and learned quite la lot. I certainly learned to appreciate how tough manual labor can be!
This place is amazing. Try to plan your visit in the late afternoon. You will be rewarded with stunning images of the sun setting on the mounds of salt and sea. Reds, blues, and greens light up the evening. Have aperitivo at the bar next to the museum. Bring a camera, you will need it!
To be honest I didn't know what to expect from this place and the truth is it surprised me in a good way. This place is an old "salina", which means they make salt from the sea water.

If staying in Trapani, there is the possibility to visit salt museum. We had decided to go there by hop on-hop off bus "Salina bus" - staying in front of the port or Egatours.

We couldn't make it in the afternoon, but I reckon that the place must be beautiful at sunset. For more interesting shots, late summer would probably be a better... More
Walked here from Trapani - enjoyed our tour of the museum - staff very nice and able to do the short tour in English. Had a lovely glass of wine nearby. The very kind lady in the museum called us a taxi.
It does not take long to learn about how once they used to collect the salt and how they do now,so even if you don't have much time ,it is worth to go to the salt museum that is in a beautiful area .
Incredible history or the salt industry just on the seas each in Nubia. The red garlic and the artisinal salts! Wild birds galore lots of Flamingo... almost makes you think the salt should be pink!
