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 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.

Stopped at this salt pan after visiting the one in Marsala. We didn’t go into the museum, but it’s worth a stop just to take photos. It’s out of the way so unless you have a car I’m not certain how one would get there.

We saw the salt being produced in Sicily on a recent BBC documentary and thought this place to be a 'must see'. We weren't disappointed! It is quite a small museum but the highlight of the visit is given by one of the current owners...More

When you are heading to the western part of Sicily, it's worth to visit this Salt Museum in Trapani. It's a great experience to know the traditional way of processing salt, the equipments used, and a little bit of history. My kids were fascinated, the...More

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
