Knowledgeable staff and beautiful exhibits! The museum is set up in a private house, but it doesn't make the museum less interesting at all! The son of the owner gave me a very insightful and knowledgeable tour of all the minerals that can be found near Olympus. It gives you a lot of geological background of the area and it's a great way to start touring places near Olympus Range. I'd highly recommend going there! Sadly I had to cut my visit short, because I visited the museum during a bus tour of the Olympus area. But if you do have time to spare, do yourself a favour and visit this interesting museum!
What an amazing museum and what amazing people work there! I wholeheartedly recommend it! You will hear great stories about not only Olympus but the entire Greece and see such dedication and passion of the museum guides. Truly inspiring.
