The museum

The Milos Mining Museum (MMM) is located in Adamas, the island’s main port.

The Museum’s aim is to promote the rich geological and mining history of Milos and to pay homage to all those who have worked hard in order to develop the island’s mineral wealth that contributed greatly to its financial and cultural affluence during its long and uninterrupted history.

The MMM was established and operates with the support of Imerys Industrial Minerals Greece S.A. The first steps for its creation were taken in 1995 and it was completed three years later, opening its doors to the public on 23 May 1998.

With an aim to inform and to educate the public, the MMM organizes periodic exhibitions, scientific conferences, as well as special guided visits to industrial facilities, mines and areas with geological interest, while it also publishes books on subjects related to mineral resources and mining.
