  • We visited this Museum according to the advice of the Green guide and Michelin and we have not been disappointed, me and my friends. The Museum features interactive history and the manufacturing of olive oil and the specificity of the Istrian olive oil. We had the formula with the tasting of 5 oils, and we had an exciting presentation by Croatian, student girl in biology and passionate about olive oil. We bought those who us the most, quite affordable, in the big shop of the Museum. The staff is adorable, attentive and passionate by this wonderful product. The Museum is modern and bright, and greatly enhances olive oil. This museum deserves that we stop. This was our best visit to Pula. For my part, I discovered a passion for olive oil by this visit.

  • The marketing for this museum is very good, with the posters and banners and stickers all over town. We expected something wonderful and found only bored staff and overpriced souvenirs.  more »
  • Interesting background knowledge with audio guides about the history of olive oil. The hammer is the gold tour of the Olivenöltastings. After that, you can see quality oil like a pro.

  • We thought olei meant old, and histriae meant history. The one about history was right, but we ended up liking the museum. Now i want to be an olive-farmer. And i live in Danmark. Let's go climate change!
  • Great experience of you want to get an introduction into olive oil, it's history, production methods, varieties and different qualities. With the entrance to the exhibition you also get 3 samples to taste and a personal introduction into the art of trading olive oil. With the gold ticket (higher price) you can taste up to 7 or 8 different oils. Very competent and friendly staff and you are able to buy all the oils you tasted and even more in the shop.
  • Nice museum, showing history and technology around olive oil. The tasting in the "basic" variant is really a nice eye opener, but you only get the extremes (a good oil and a really bad one). So, If you really want to try different oils, book the premium ;)
  • Good olive oil
  • Great Museum. Very interesting and beautifully designed. Super friendly and helpful staff who speak English and also german. Whom the history, manufacture and in addition the differences to the supermarket oil interest should be here.
