The Olive Museum was created in 2008 by the company "Pelion Oros" in the settlement of Ano Gatzeas. It is housed in a two-story stone building owned by G. Vogiatzis that consists of the main Museum (100 sq.m.) and a smaller designed projection area (20 sq.m.) with 4 built-in jars that used to be an oil storage area. The main area of the Museum, where today various objects of oil sorting and processing are exhibited according to thematic sections, functioned as an oil production workshop. There are also oil storage jars of various sizes, hooks, metal funnels and rings, doges (barrel boards for the construction of the vat), etc. In the forecourt of the Museum, a vat (a large wooden container where olives were put in salt water), 2.20 m high and 3.00 m in diameter, has been assembled to function for educational purposes.
