In this study, the role of olive and olive oil in human life and the olive oil museums of today will be discussed in this study. Olive oil, a gift of Mediterranean climate to humanity, has been of great importance for Mediterranean geography since antiquity. As far back as the Bronze Age, it is seen that olive oil is the main product that keeps the economy of Minos and Mycenaean Civilizations in Greece and Aegean Region alive. In the following periods, olive oil does not lose its importance for Aegean cultures. Today, in the Mediterranean geography, Croatia, Greece, the Aegean Islands and West Anatolian coasts have begun to establish the cultural heritage of olive oil. The greatest reference of these museums is undoubtedly the place in the Aegean Cultures of olive and olive oil in Antiquity.
