A 300 m² exhibition space organised around a stone millstone and olive presses. Visitors will be able to learn everything there is to know about the methods of cultivation, harvesting, oil extraction and preparing the olives. Exhibition gallery (local artists).

Thanks to the objects on display, visitors will learn about the centuries-old history and more recent techniques of olive growing in Nyons and the surrounding area, as well as the various uses of PDO Nyons olive oil. From the harvest to the mill, learn about the objects used to contain and store the oil, as well as its many uses, such as lighting with oil lamps. Visitors can also see an authentic 19th-century mill, some ancient presses, tools and various containers. As well as a wide range of objects devoted to the olive tree. This collection is brought to you by the Friends of the Olive Tree Association.

Videos are shown explaining the age-old knowledge of the Baronnies olive tree, with all the ancestral manufacturing methods. In order to link this historic space with the contemporary one, the continuous extraction processes and the modern preparation of table olives are explained in a film about the cooperative.
