A local friend insisted we needed to visit the museum. Not much to see. They do have a short video in multiple languages explaining the salt making process. It is interesting to visit the area. The museum doesn't add much to the experience. Expensive for what you get.

We were given a tour by the young man whose family now owns the mill. He spoke excellent English and explained all the old equipment and the history of salt production in the area.

The tour can be given in English, and the woman we met at the booth outside the museum selling salt also spoke very good English. How could we not buy the salt?!

We visited in april 2017. Magnificent views on the town of Trapani, the sea and the saltpans. Visit in the museum alows you to go up on the roof to see the windmill up close and gives an overview on the region.

A small place, but the presentation was absorbing and informative. 3€ per person and took about 30 minutes then you're free to walk around the area and of course, to buy some salt!

This was a very interesting side trip from nearby Trapani. The ancient method of harvesting sea salt is fascinating and the small gift shop offers many options for buying flavired salts. I purchased the lemon flavored salt and boy is a it good on fish!

We entered without much expectations and left with a very good experience. The guide explained in detail the technique of salt production and every detail was really interesting. Highly recommended for everybody.
