The Ethno-Anthropological Museum was created in 2001 with the Community contribution FEOGA structural fund, program leader II "Rock of cerere", of which the town of Nissoria is a partner. The creation of the museum of civilization in Nissoria is another important opportunity for growth for our community. Growth in terms of cooperation between different agencies, including the areas of administrative organization and between the common and individual citizens. Growth in cultural terms, as we can not forget that our current reality is closely linked to the rural origins in the full sense of the word. In order not to lose this bond, to strengthen it in its sentimental aspects, human, traditional, we think that an initiative can testify faithfully to our children and to future generations, the world from which we come, for them to not forget, so that know him, respect him and love him.

The ethno-anthropological museum is nestled in the park on September 11, wanted by Mayor Angelo Murgo in 2001 to commemorate the victims of the attack on the Twin Towers took place on 11 September 2001 which was attended by some inhabitants of Nissoria.

Within it are placed the olives already cleaned; by grinding them was out of the dough, which placed in the cylinders rope called "coffee", he was squeezed by the press. The liquid product was put into the separators where it was divided oil from water, at the end was obtained the finished product, namely olive oil.
