Information

The Open-Air Water Power Museum in Dimitsana highlights the importance of water power in traditional society. Focusing on the main pre-industrial techniques that utilize water for the production of a variety of goods, the Museum links these techniques to the history and daily life of the local society over the ages. 

Visitors can tour the traditional workshops that are surrounded by dense vegetation and running waters. The first building houses a fulling-tub and a flour mill. Outside the mill a raki cauldron is exhibited, and right opposite at the tannery visitors can learn about the various stages of the leather-dressing process. The cobbled road leads to a gunpowder mill which reminds the role of Dimitsana during the 1821 Revolution of the Greeks.
