We were amazed at the amount of information not only about the mining but also about the people who mined. Geological exhibits that were very detailed. Archeological information also included. It is a smaller museum but held our attention throughout with all the displays.

Great way to find out more about the history of the mining industry in Milos. Really glad I visited. Only takes 1-2 hours at the most. Very easy to find from Adamas port too, only a 10 min walk.
