O sal foi um dos factores mais importantes no desenvolvimento desta região. As referências sobre as salinas remontam ao ano de 959, na doação de Mumadona Dias, onde se pode ler: terras in alavarium et salinas que ibidem comparavimus. Este Museu, situado na marinha da Troncalhada junto ao canal das pirâmides, é uma excelente oportunidade para conhecer a técnica e o saber tradicional do salgado de Aveiro.
