Milos Mining Museum is located in Adamas, the harbour of the island, and its establishment aims to honour and promote the mining history of Milos and to display the island's mineral wealth.
The Milos Mining Museum was established and operates with the support of S&B Industrial Minerals S.A. to display and honour Milos long mining history and mineral wealth. Its construction works, begun in 1995 and were completed three years later, when the museum opened its doors to the public on May 23, 1998.
Objects, pictures and photographs in the exhibition areas of the museum present the impressive geological peculiarity of Milos and narrate in their own way the mining history of the island, while, at the same time, they pay a minimum tribute to all those who have worked and are still working for the development of mining on the island, and they also connect the past to the present.
The building where the museum is housed includes the ground and the 1st floor, constituting the main exhibition areas, as well as the auxiliary rooms in the basement.
On the ground floor, the visitor gets a first contact to the mining history and activity of Milos. A series of photographs, representations and paintings depict schematically its various stages. The presentation is surrounded by old and new geological and topographical maps of the island, several authentic tools and instruments. Moreover, depictions of the current mining activity and environment restoration works are presented.
The room of the 1st floor is dedicated to the presentation of Milos' mineral wealth. Samples of minerals prevailing in the current mining activities of the island are exhibited in window-cases, accompanied by photographic material and information on their processing and uses.
The auxiliary facilities of the basement consist of one room with a 40-person capacity, equipped with audiovisual means to project videos related to the themes of the Museum and host scientific events, as well as one room for various purposes, like educational programs, special exhibitions and other actions/events.
