Owner description: The Open Air Water-Power Museum, in Dimitsana (Peloponnese), highlights the importance of water-power in traditional society. Focusing on the main pre-industrial techniques that take advantage of water to produce a variety of goods, it links them to the history and daily life of the local society over the ages. The Open Air Water-Power Museum has restored traditional installations and water-powered mechanisms. The workshops are surrounded by thick vegetation and abundant running water, where you can go for a walk. Their permanent equipment has been repaired so that it is now in working order.

This is a very interesting museum, both for adults and children, traditionally built in an amazing landscape. The visitor sees 4 different water mills (for cloth's washing, for flour milling, for leather tanning and for gunpowder manufacturing). There are informative signs and short videos explaining the procedure and the staff puts the mills in operation periodically.

Very interesting, informative, well presented,with friendly staff who speak good English explaining in more details how some machinery used to work. Gorgeous setting in the countryside, terribly clean and well maintained. Our favorite spot was the Tannery.If you are in the area, don't miss it. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes as it's on different levels on cobble paths. There are also lovely walks from there, but I would advise wearing proper walking boots.
