  • When we arrived we weren't sure they were ready for us. It needs booking in advance. The father of the family gave us superb audiovisual guides in English.. He then accompanies you around the museum and at first we thought this was odd but then realised that at each stop he added either an explanation or made it interactive by showing us how water flowed through and allowing us to turn the millstones as though we were mules. He was absolutely charming and kind. It really gave an appreciation for the art of making the olive oil and this historical building dating back nearly 300 years. Not to be missed. Genuinely an experience you won't forget. The olive oil was tasty at the end so we bought some as a souvenir.
  • Highly highly highly recommend. Martina lead us so beautifully around the museum. She is so knowledgeable and had so many interesting things to share with us. We booked by emailing on the day but I imagine in high season tours would book out days in advance.
