The glistening pyramid situated by the Salt Mountains is Taiwan's first "salt"-themed museum, the Taiwan Salt Museum. Inside, there is a realistic salt pan diorama as well as the most complete collection of books and cultural relics pertaining to the salt industry in Taiwan. Here you can also learn what the salt industry is like around the world by visiting the "Salt Mine in Poland" and the "Well-Salt in Sichuan" exhibits. In addition, the "World’s Salt" section displays all the salt-related products that are important in your daily life. If you're tired from the journey, try the local specialty "salt coffee," which has a rich and distinctive aroma, yet isn't quite salty. You can also purchase other salt products here.
