The museum person gave us a 45 minute talk for 3 E each, it was quite fascinating. I understand that the prime time to visit is in August, during the salt harvest. We visited in November and still enjoyed it.

This was dull. The museum is dark, and the "host" at the front desk didn't acknowledge my presence. One has to pay separately (just one euro) to walk around the salt pans, but there is no interpretation there. Yes, the windmills are picturesque, but one...More

Here you will observe sea salt harvested the old fashioned way! Scenic worksite with windmills and rows of gleaming salt hills. The small museum and guided tour is very informative. The little gift shop has small bags of salt nuggets for only 1 euro...make handy...More

We visited the salt museum with our tour group. While we were there, we put on boots and walked out to the area being processed. After we saw a demonstration, we grabbed shovels to move the salt piles to wheel barrows, then dumped the salt...More

We visited the salines to learn more about how the salt was produced. The outside tour was self guided and self evident and would have benefited from a little more explanation if visited before the inside part but it as certainly value for money as...More

We went here primarily to see the flamingoes, which we did. But the museum was a real gem. Much old machinery. Explained the salt collection process that has been going on there for millennia. Well spoken guide.

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
