Pleasantly surprised w the information, presentation, history right under our nose. Family from Alabama loved every minute. It was a hot day and a little uncomfortable...not that common...so i’m sure most days are comfortable.

Great little museum to learn about Syracuse's salt history. Doesn't take long to have a look around but it's interesting but a little run down. Still a good stop if you're in the area.

It’s a museum about salt,enough said. Go outside and enjoy the giant park that the museum is in. I went here when I was in middle school as as an adult and nothing has changed.

Syracuse is known as the Salt City and the Salt museum gives you a good education as to why. Kids might find it a bit boring, ours are 6 & 8 and lasted about 30 minutes, I would like to go back solo to spend...More

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.
