Really interesting little museum. Free spontaneous tour about how the olives are grown, harvested and pressed, with a small museum of old implements. Lots of sampling of all kinds of things we’d never come across. No pressure to buy. Cafe outside. Lovely time.

We rented a car and drove around the island today expecting the Olive Press Museum to be a highlight.. but it was a little anti-climatic. It's ok. But we could have skipped it and spent more time visiting remote beaches today on Naxos.

Small hidden olive museum with character and small informative tour. Different olive oil, cake and other tastings (free)! Must do while in Naxos!

Nice little room displaying the various tools used to make olive oil. The local guide explained the process and we were then invited to buy the local olive products and there are plenty of them. We also got to taste olive oil cake.

A friendly and charismatic owner. The place is closed in the summer, but it’s a nice spot to visit when it is open. There is a room with some history about the olive oil business and attached is a store that sells all kinds of...More

I am not sure. We rented a car for 50 USD a day from Agia Anna. We stayed at Step by Step Studios, which I highly recommend.

We rented an ATV (or quad bike). It's really the best way to get around. A scooter is also an option. During our day exploring the island we didn't see a single bus!
