  • The exhibits few, simple and clear. The way of presenting extremely "user-friendly". Especially the animated models will thrill kids. Very nice the storefront with the oil products of our country, a pity that it is not for sale) Very good quality the Museum shop. And the price of the ticket at very reasonable. The private initiative in all its glory. Any relationship with some public museums, where the moyntada kyiriarchei. Even in hours, instead of the classic antitoyristiko 8-3, much more logical and flexible 10-5. Congratulations to Piraeus Bank Culture sector, I wish at some point to take some of the chiliotalaipwrimena outdoor museums that languish abandoned to their fate.

  • Beautitul museum dedicated to the tree of olive. Modern exhibition, with historical and educational information, regarding the production and the usage of olive from the ancient years until now. Both indoor and outdoor exhibition space, a gift shop, mini market with olive products and a cafe exist at the museum. The time i visited it, there was also a small interesting archeological exhibition. The entrance is 3 euros for adults.
  • Very informative, tells you everything you need to know about olive growing in Greece throughout the ages, but it does more telling than showing. It could do with a tasting olives and olive oil. Even the museum cafe did not offer olive based products.
  • The olive oil industry in Greece explained into great detail, past & present. Excellent information from several angles, with demonstration of oil press & grinders. Must see, well worth the time.
  • Great museum. Worth visiting. Many cool items, charts and maps. All descriptions are in English and Greek. Interactive elements - electric powered miniaturized scenes. Outside area with a tool that you can actually use - an olive oil press. It's great for recording videos and having fun with your friends. A temple-like room with music. All of this makes this museum a must-stop on your way to southern Peloponese or Mystra.
  • Very small but very informative and very well organised.
