  • Absolutely great. We loved it, including the kids. They also have an extra 2 euro a great audio system that explains for each room what needs to be known. They have also a coffee and a small shop which sales local products like olive oil, cheese, etc. Rarely seen such a commitment and perfection in a family museum. Definitely and’ experience to do
  • Well worth a visit. The lady (7th generation miller I think; my Italian is very poor!) is so nice and the audio in each room gives some very interesting information in a variety of languages. Amazing to think of the generations who have lived and worked from the caves behind the modern facade; right up to the 1950s
  • Excellent look back into the history of the flour water mills that used to be along the river in grottoes in this valley. This original mill has all the remarkable original workings plus living quarters of the miller and family going back 4 generations. The lady who runs the mill is the wife of the present miller!! See the original grind stones actually grinding. There is also a small shop where you can buy the flour made and the local walnuts. A remarkable and not to be missed opportunity.
  • Deserves a visit - lovely little museum, well thought out and obviously great effort put into it. The audio guide is very clever. You can also buy the freshly milled flour.
  • Lovely place for short visit and explore old technology.
