This museum gives an overview of the mining industry in Milos, and will offer you a unique perspective of the island. Don't miss the short movies shown at the basement of the building.

The museum was OK but very small and I think would be best visited by someone who is very passionate about the subject-matter (mining and different types of materials mined, production and transportation, etc).

The museum provides a clear history of mining on Milos. It is well designed and the displays are exemplary in their clarity. Carefully chosen artefacts take one through different eras. In the upstairs gallery the displays on the working of obsidian are fascinating. The films...More
