Interesting place, mostly shop with degustation. You have there a lot of different olivas and pesto. Also You will find there small museum - how they produced oil from olives. But i had impression that everything was done to make the shop more interesting for customers. you go there and buy becuase You have a feeling of exclusivity. Well done!

Needed to buy good olive oil on the last day of my trip. The museum was closed because of lunch time. Ran into the owner's wife who called her husband so he would come back and open the museum just so that we could buy their great oil. He also spent a long time advising us and explaining the various... More

The Museum is great in explaining how olive oil was produced prior to modern equipment, and how it was linked to the local farming communities. I would advise to take the time and watch the short film as that explains all the relics on the display in the museum. It also has a great little shop to buy local produce,... More

We were very interested in the well laid out museum. Pictures and films and really felt part of the process of producing the olive oil. When we came out of the museum there was a fantastic shop with lots of olive oil products. Also tasty testers of oils with bread and crackers

The videos are interesting- the signs on the exhibits are somewhat confusing but the videos clarify the whole process!

I visited this museum (really a fun attraction) on a whim. I was pleasantly surprised by how pretty and well-organized it is. I've been on many a olive oil tasting, most of which are predictable and boring, but the environment, tasting, and educational experience here is worth an hour of your time. You'll love it!

It's a very short walk from the center of town, although the last few hundred yards are on the side of the main road. A very interesting museum about the history and process of making olive oil. There are lots of little treats to taste in the gift shop as well as olive oils, products made with olive oil and... More

A great little find - excellent free museum that is just about the right length, and works enough for young children. Very informative and the shop area, which includes the opportunity to try a range of oils and vinegars, was great.

It was a 5 min walk from Camping Cisano, so we went! Lovely, well maintained museum, with interesting facts for the children. Ideal to spend 45 mins total. The shop has good quality, reasonably priced items, with a large selection of canapes to try out. Cant go without buying something, from a 2 Euro jar of sun dried tomatoes/salsa verde,... More

About a 40 minute walk from Bardolino this small museum is free and quite a little delight if you are interested in the local culture. You are led through the history of olive oil growing and production and there is a shortish film in English which is very informative. Free museum and tasting of olive oils, balsamic, and different condiments.... More
