We went to the museum on are way to the beach. It is not large large but tells you of the history of Milos. The museum does a good job of explaining what was mined on the island and why. We enjoyed it.

A very good experience and travel in time to watch the exploitation of the land of Milos hundreds of years ago till nowadays. Its a must see before or after visiting especially Theiorixia beach in order to understand Milos overall!

A very interesting museum, with an entrance fee of 4euro. Definitely worth a visit. It has a lot of information about the mining history of the island and great rock samples. The gift shop is also great for presents.
