Basic but interesting collection, mostly out of donations of local families. Again, no fancy, no entrance fee, kept simple and authentic.

You'll walk through the small museum in about 10 minutes. But there are some interesting things, if you're interested in olive oil history! Museum entrance is free of charge. Outside you'll find the famous olive tree of vouves and a taverna.

A well maintained attraction of great interest , next to full blossom olive trees over 3,500 years of age, that still produce one of the finest varieties of olive oil.

The idea is good but is very poor. It needs more items so that it can be more interesting. There is no entry fee. The history of olive oil and olives in Crete goes back thousands of years and there is lot more to offer.
