MIlos Museums


Housed in a 19th-century neoclassical building that was designed by German Architect Ernst Ziller, the Archaeological Museum of Milos focuses on two great eras. Relics date from the 3rd millennium BC to the first century AD. Contents include obsidian remains, a replica of Venus de Milo (Aphrodite of Milos), and many prehistoric artefacts from the geometric, archaic, classical, Hellenistic and Roman times.  Open daily 8 am to 3 pm, except for Mondays, tickets 3€.

The Ecclesiastical Museum of Milos by the waterfront in Adamas lies appropriately in a thousand-year-old church of the Holy Trinity. Icons and wood carvings dating from more prosperous Venetian times and gifts from local migrants to Russia are on display, including 14th century icons. Of particular interest is the icon from the Cretan School which represents Christ’s body being carried down from the cross, as well as several paintings by Antoinio Skordilis. Chalices, iconostases, a bishop’s throne from the 17th century and much more provide interesting displays. Open daily 9.15 am to 1.15 pm and 6.15 am to 10.15 pm, free admission

The Folk and Historic Museum of Milos reveals many different aspects of the locals’ lives, including food, entertainment, traditions and clothing. The main room covers the economic and social aspect of families, while the loom room is where the family members’ clothes were made. There were no individual bedrooms, except one reserved for a married couple. The kitchen doubled as a store room, so did the winepress room. Opens Tuesday to Saturday: 10 am to 2 pm and 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm, Sunday 10 am to 2 pm, tickets 3€.

Milos boasts a very rich geological makeup, and there is nowhere better to understand its mineral wealth and geology than at the Milos Mining Museum in Adamas. Wonder through many different objects and pictures to read about the mining history and traditions, keeping in mind that mining represents the backbone of the island’s economy rather than tourism. Video presentations and free guided tours upon request are available in this two-floor museum. Open Daily 9.15 am to 13.45 pm and 6.15 pm to 8.45 pm, free admission
