This was my second visit, and just as awed this time as the first! A beautiful museum filled with information and displays. The coffee shop downstairs serves one of the best cappuccinos I had in Sparta.

Excellent visual and informative displays about olives in English and Greek. Lots of natural light and open air displays with movable models. History and geography of cultivation, development of production of oil, and facts about different tree varieties. Digital media with English subtitles.

Really interesting and well-done museum highlighting the importance and history of the mighty olive. Stopped by on a whim, and ended up staying for two hours. Hats off to the people who made this little gem happen.

Excellent small museum giving a fascinating history of olive oil production & its importance to 3 millennium of Greek culture. Only 3 euros entry, worth every penny - we spent 90 minutes there.
