We visited this place and it is a short walk from the hotel we stayed in. You can bathe in the mud there, but we did not partake as it smelt disgusting and put me off, but there were plaenty of other people doing it.

Inaccessible unless by taxi. It's a shack on the side of the lake. A short video presentation on an old tv and then a wander around a few photos. It was peculiar and didn't do the industry history justice at all. Not really worth going...More

An interesting museum if you want to get acquainted with the history of salt production. It was good to visit with kids as it is small and it is not time consuming for small kids to familiarize with the exposition.

We sat in a room while our tour guide translated what the curator had to say and then we watched a 10 minute video on salt works through out the Mediterranean

Intresting to know the past and importance of the salt. You can see how the sea salt is yielded. A good distraction from daily routine.
