A Salty Past

Lion Salt Works
18th August 2015 - 19th August 2015

Try your hand at making salt. People have been making salt around the world for years, so why don’t you give it a go?

Salt making at these times:

10.30 - 11 am
11.15 - 11.45am
12noon -12.30pm
2.00 - 2.30pm
2.45 - 3.15pm
3.30 - 4.00pm

Although there is a charge to visit the Museum, this Family Holiday Activity, along with entry to the Play Area, Butterfly Garden, Café, Gift Shop and Car Park, is free.

This new ‘living museum’ gives a fascinating and fresh insight into the story of salt, explaining the national significance of Cheshire’s salt industry and how it shaped the local people, economy and landscape.

This is brought to life in the Museum with fun, interactive and imaginative educational exhibits, including a walk-in ‘subsiding house’. Theatrical lighting, sound and film also evoke the giant clouds of steam once produced by the site’s huge salt-boiling pans.

The Museum is open daily, except Mondays and is closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
