Good information with digital guide. Few people, we were the only one at the moment. Interesting to see how they have restored the buildings.

“Make a detour to this Olive Oil museum”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

A must-see museum explaining the mystery and history of olive oil production, the major industry and wealth generator for Lesvos. A major cooperative factory has been tastefully restored with almost working presses, hydraulic pressure pumps and boiler. No part of the olive is wasted: first pressing for salad, second pressing for cooking, low quality oil to make soap and finally the 'pomace' (pulp and hard kernel) as fuel for the boiler. Video, photos, boards, and a gift and coffee shop.

“Olive Oil”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Very informative and interesting.

The History of the production of the Olive Oil through the years was both explained in details by 1st watching a Video and then by the Owner personally.
