Didn't realize it was a museum until I came to review. We had a tasting with our tour group and walked around the downstairs with the machinery. Guess that was the museum part! ;)

The quickest visit to a museum I have been too. Considering the importance of olive oil in this region and Portugal, they could have done a lot better. Very disappointed. I’ve been to Restaurantes with better olive oil reproduction equipment.

A very interesting little place to visit to learn the olive oil making process. One can also sample different types of olive oil and buy the favourite.

Must do. It's not big but it is charming and quite appealing. It's well organised and the collection is interesting.

Worth a 1 hr visit, more with children, as it gives a good idea of the production method for olive oil.
