The Salt Museum

The Salt Museum, Syracuse NY

“Why is Syracuse nicknamed the Salt City?”, “What were the two types of salt producing methods used during this era?”

The Salt Museum

Discover the industry that created the City of Syracuse and supplied the entire nation with salt! Explore the site of an original boiling block where brine (salt water) was turned into what was then considered one of the country’s most precious commodities. See the actual kettles, wooden barrels and other equipment that were used in this fascinating process which came to an end in the 1920′s.

The museum, located on the shore of Onondaga Lake, is full of dynamic exhibits and artifacts. Constructed from timbers taken from actual salt warehouses, it provides an old time rustic experience during your visit.

Gift shop, operated by the Friends of Historic Onondaga Lake, visitor information center and picnic areas on location.
