The Archaeological Museum of Milos is housed in a Neoclassical building in Plaka, the capital of Milos island. This building was constructed in the 1870s based on the designs of Ernst Ziller, a famous Bavarian architect of those times. After the building was renovated, it finally housed the museum in 1985.
Although this is a small museum, it has many interesting exhibits. In particular, there is a collection of prehistoric findings from the excavations in Phylakopi region, including sculptures made from rare local stones, obsidian tools, inscriptions, pottery pieces, and more. Items from other historical periods are also on display.
