  • This is a must go museum in the beautiful island of Milos. A lot of rock exhibits with a lot of history and explanation. Some parts are interactive and also have audio tour. They have also a mini cinema with 14' videos with old mine workers sharing their experience. They have a mini gift shop with rocks all over the world. You have to visit!
  • It's OK I suppose. The audio tour signs were like a game of where is Waldo. There wasn't much about mining overall, and the videos at the end were a complete waste of time. I would only recommend it if you have or are planning to go to the sulfur mines.
  • This is perhaps the most intriguing museum I’ve been to in Greece! Fantastic, friendly service, and a plethora of information regarding the local rocks and minerals on Milos. It also informed my group on a hike to see the “Mushroom Rock” and where to find the “Obsidian Beach”; a beach where you can find natural shards of obsidian on. This ROCKed!
  • Interesting for people into geology. Has good exhibits and an AV about mining industry in Greece.
  • Three floors of information about the mining history of the island of Milos, starting with obsidian 11,000 years ago. Great collection of obsidian artifacts. Oral history video of old miners talking about their work. Beautiful photos of the island, and suggested walking tours.
