About Us
Discover the industry that created the City of Syracuse and supplied the entire nation with salt! Explore the site of an original boiling iblock 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, visitor information center and picnic areas on location.

The Salt Museum at Onondaga Lake Park invites school groups to learn about the history of salt production in Syracuse. Local historical interpreter and character actor Scott Peal has created an entertaining and educational tour designed for 4th-7th grade classes. Students will be placed in the role of "Reporter," to investigate within the Salt Museum answers to such questions as: "Why is Syracuse nicknamed the Salt City?", "What were the two types of salt producing methods used during this era?" and more.
