Its aim is to spread knowledge about the Cracow Saltworks Museum Wieliczka and the Wieliczka Salt Mine.

The exhibition presents the history of the Wieliczka Salt Mine, covering:
- The geology of the salt deposit and the beauty of Wieliczka salt
- Salt brewing, developing in Wieliczka from 3500 BC to the 16th century
