We didn´t visit museum, or went to island and attractions there. We just visited souvenir shop, bought some samples of salt and walked around, sat on the bench, talked and enjoyed our time at this place. It was simple, no other people, I liked it very much.

Worth visiting. Try to get there before the hoards of tourists descends upon the location. Opens around 9:00am. I took a quick boat ride across the flats to get another perspective, took around 30mins and cost €5. Rather interesting to think that they still use this process, when it is more efficient to use machinery. Must be hard work, especially... More

This was a little stop en route to Trapani. We're so glad we did. The history of the salt making and the museum are excellent. Really interactive and even my teens loved the video and salt tasting.

The grounds here are beautiful and the drive along the way just as nice. The museum was interesting. I highly suggest picking up some of the salt they sell.

A visit here is well worth an hour or so. The museum is interesting and the video provides an excellent overview of the history of salt production in the area. The displays only add to the experience and the view from the top of the windmill is wonderful. We visited in April but May or June would provide a better... More

Salt flats. Windmills powering Archimedes screws. Good video showing the process. If you are already in the area then this is an interesting stop. I wouldn't go out of your way to see this. There are times when it is filled with school kids and then it needs to be avoided. If this review is helpful then please indicate so... More

We were on a one-week guided tour of Sicily and this was the day we were to see the sites outside of Palermo, and for some reason our tour guide had decided that this would be one of the sites we should see. These salt ponds were totally unspectacular and totally not special. Perhaps especially so because we were from... More

This is a delightful and interesting small museum in a restored, functioning windmill set in the Stagnone salt pans. The excellent presentations are offered in at least six languages. It is OK to touch. You are also welcomed to explore the windmill and its workings. See the wonderful old wooden gears and grinding stones. Climb upstairs to the outside balcony... More

This was about 1 hour. (We did not take a boat excursion). A 15 minute film to explain how the process of sea salt extraction happens. An old windmill is included on site. Gives visual hands on understanding. Some old tools as well. (Watch out for the local entrepreneur that wants to have a payment to watch your car in... More

I new salt was produced from seawater and it was nice to see the process from beginning to end and also that it is still in production after many years, although on a reduced scale
