Although relatively interesting, it felt like there was so much more they could have done with this place. There are a few exhibits with explanations, but no guidance as to what order to look at everything. There also isn't a gift shop that sells olive...More

A simple but magnificent museum on olive oil production over the past century. Start with the main hall and don't skip the small rooms outside. Visit the museum shop, it has items from several small museums in Greece.
