Flashlights will be kept ready so that the darker corners can also be illuminated. All children who succeed in their search will receive a small memento of the afternoon at the museum ticket office. The salt workshop is not open on Saturday, but the rooms of the Josef Winckler Museum, i.e. the former inspector’s apartment in the Salt Boiling House can also be visited.
