Grand Saline Salt Museum
We are the Grand Saline Salt Museum and we have an amazing story to tell! Imagine a substance so precious that it was used as money, literally worth its weight in gold. Wars have been fought over it. Cities, roads, canals and railways were built for it. Without it, there would be no life on our planet.
What does it feel like to be 800 feet below ground in the pitch-black depths of a salt mine? And how could a small inland salt prairie influence Native American culture and shape the future of the entire Ark-La-Tex region?
Learn everything you never knew about salt, from prehistory to modern day times and the incredible impact this once-rare, now- common mineral has had on our world and the development of civilization.
Upon completion, The Grand Saline Salt Museum will serve as a focal point of education, conservation, historical preservation, and entertainment for school based field trips and tourist of all ages. By design, our museum exhibits and audiovisuals will promote surrounding communities and attractions, encourage regional tourism, local investment, and economic prosperity.
