The Salt Museum was inaugurated in 2007 in Figueira da Foz. At the core of this museum is the interpretation, the valuing and the promotion of a century-old connection between local population and the salt ponds of Figueira da Foz.

This is simultaneously an information and education centre targeting at different audiences for the need to preserve a traditional activity and a non-industrial product, contributing for a sustainable local development.

The Salt Museum offers its visitors unique experiences, as well as detailed information on 5 major themes: definition of salt; salt in nature; the history of salt in Portugal; the salt technology in Figueira da Foz and the production cycle and the salt ponds and nature conservation.
