The Agia Varvara early industrial workshop presents a captivating museum, seamlessly integrating a traditional residence with a working space. This unique exhibit offers a glimpse into the bygone daily life on the island.

At the heart of the workshop lies primitive equipment dating back to the 1920s, including a flour mill, crushed wheat mill, barley mill, and oil mill. These machines were ingeniously powered by a single engine, distributing motion to each as required by the owner through a network of transmission shafts, wheels, and belts. Additionally, the owner's wife contributed to the operations with a wine press and loom. Together, these tools paint a vivid picture of the island's history and the industriousness of its inhabitants.
