The Salina Turda salt mine of Romania has been converted into a fully functional museum. This mine is deep underground where people can actually descend to the bottom and view historical artifices pertaining to salt figures and mining equipment. The entire mine leads to three exhibition chambers where people can visit frequently. This salt mine was officially shut down and is now open to the public for education purposes.

People can either view the subterranean lake or admire the patterns on the cave walls to learn about these terrestrial features. There’s also recreational areas like a playground, sports arena, and amphitheater that cater to people of all ages where they can learn and have fun at the same time. This salt mine is an interesting location to visit and learn about the history of salt.
