Tuzla

Museum of Salt

By all accounts, this shouldn’t work. It is located a few kilometres outside the city centre in a dilapidated building that forms part of the modern factory. Visit is by appointment only and not a single word of English can be found. Despite everything going against it, Tuzla’s Museum of Salt somehow comes out the other side as one of the most charming museums in the entire country. Salt has been integral to the city since the Neolithic times and that story is told in detail here, giving enough information without ever labouring the point. The photographs, blueprints, machinery and maps are magnificent. Salt bridged all ideological, political and religious gaps, proving as vital to the Ottomans as it did the Habsburgs as it did the socialists. Make the effort to give this museum a visit, and remember never to judge a book by its cover.
