9+1 REASONS TO COME TO LESBOS

9+1 MUSEUMS

The Museum of Industrial Olive-Oil Production of Lesvos presents the industrial phase of olive-oil production in Greece. It focuses on the changes brought about by the introduction of mechanical motion in the process of olive-oil production and approaches the contribution of the region's inhabitants to the production process with sensitivity. 
Its objective is to showcase our industrial heritage in the sector of olive-oil production and incorporate it into the broader architectural, social and cultural context of the period. and we most certainly urge you: join us in a 360ο tour of the museum!

However, the Ancient Greek institutions closest to today’s meaning of museum were the thesauroi or treasuries, where the votive offerings of the faithful were collected in the Pan-hellenic temples, and the pinakothekes or galleries housing paintings honouring the gods. In Hellenistic times, Ptolemy I Soter founded the Musaeum (circa 290 BC) in Alexandria, one of the largest cultural centres of the Hellenistic World. In Renaissance Italy, we encounter the ‘museum naturale’ presenting collections of natural objects and curiosities, while during the Enlightenment the first books on the subject appear, such as the work Museographia. Finally, as of the 19th century, the term ‘museum’ acquires the same meaning as today.
