    A museum that contains the geological history of the island. The beauty of rock great. Located in ADAMAS, the island's capital. Exposed and workplace tools and forms used by the miners in the past. Done and showing video for the mines.

    It has become a great bondage in the collection and description of minerals and rocks, while showing a video in a room downstairs about the history of the mines on the island adds to the whole effort. If someone has time should the schedule. I always get very excited about trying for the nomination of history of a place.

    the Museum is rather well done, a little off-putting if you're not geologist, audio guide in french. to do to better enjoy their stay at Milos. Sale on site of the small guidebooks Miloterranean Geo Walks well useful for walks in the island

    Nice balance of mineral exhibits (with full descriptions), mining equipment, and stories of the human experience of working the mines. Don't miss the movie of the oral histories. The large exhibit of obsidian is the best I have seen anywhere, and includes a lot of detail on how the "volcanic glass" was cleaved into scrapers and other edged items. Worth a solid hour!

    Very organised little museum, telling the story of Milos's mining industry. Great for geology fans, might also give a valuable insight on the island's history.
