Archaeological Museum

The Archaeological Museum of Milos is located in Plaka and definitely worth a visit. Housed in a neoclassical building which was designed in 1870 by the famous architect E. Ziller. It operates as a museum since 1985.

One of the most famous exhibits in the museum as well as the world is the Venus de Milo, which dominates the central hall of the Museum. Of course this statue is a copy of the original which stands in the Louvre. The statue was accidentally found in 1820 by a farmer near the settlement of Plaka.

During your visit in the Archaeological Museum of Milos you will see mainly exhibits of two periods of prosperity for the island. The first is the prehistoric period and the second starts from about 1.000 BC up until the early first century AD.

The prehistoric collection of Phylakopi will surely amaze you. Admire the famous ceramic female figure "Lady Phylakopi", dating back to 1.400 BC, which was found in a Mycenaean sanctuary as well as many other figurines of the Phylakopi sanctuaries.
