The Grand Saline Salt Palace is a quaint building nestled in the Grand Saline that sits on the natural Salt lode with the depth of 16000 feet. The palace has been rebuilt a number of times and came up with the museum in 1995 where you will find extensive memorabilia and artifacts regarding salt mining in the region. The one-storey Grand Saline Salt Palace building is made entirely out of natural rock salt and you will be given a salt crystal as a souvenir, enough to deter you from licking the salt walls of the building! You will be shown a film about the salt mining operations at Morton Salt Mines, which have actual salt mines below 750-feet of the ground.

Grand Saline Salt Palace Reviews & Ratings
While exploring every TX county we came across this spot. Definitely worth the stop. The wonderful lady who works there really makes the place. She provided us with an awesome history of the area, took the time to answer our questions and even had great recommendations for other things to see during our trip. If in the area this is a really neat stop to make.
I've been driving past this place most of my life in a hurry to get to or home from Dallas. I finally had time to stop. The place is very small. It has very interesting history of the local salt mine and lots of cool old advertising. When I was in elementary school they used to let schools tour the mine. I was out sick when it was my classes turn. I've always been curious about this place. I'm glad to have finally stopped. It's worth a stop and it wont take long to see it.
Nice people running it. Nostalgia deluxe. Used to visit the mine when I was very young.
Was cool to see a building made out of salt
Very salty building, but the lady inside was very sweet and helpful. Full of knowledge about the mine, the town, and salt in general. We had a great time!
