Karl Ivanovich Lukach (1924-2008) became the founder of the Museum. He spent almost all of his life studying salt production in Transcarpathia. In our days the Museum of the history salesopolis led by the son of Karl Ivanovich.
The Museum is located near the mines of Solotvyno salt mine at PGT. Solotvino,2 Shakhterskaya street. This is one of the largest in Europe solerudnikiv. Local salt reserves experts count more than three hundred million tons, and the thickness of the reservoir of industrial development is estimated at three hundred meters. Unfortunately, today the mines of Solotvyno salt mine are not valid. They are flooded with water, and the village suffers from karst processes.
