Greek Culture Minister inaugurates renovated Milos Island Museum


Greek Culture and Sports Minister Lina Mendoni on Friday inducted the recently renovated Milos Archaeological Museum and a new temporary exhibition on ancient grave goods, which showcases recent discoveries made in previously unspecified locations and old graveyards on the island, dating back to Mycenean, archaic and Roman-era periods.

In statements at the inauguration, Mendoni noted that the unique cultural and natural landscapes on Milos are among the comparative advantages of the island, which must be preserved and highlighted in order to attract and develop higher-quality tourism.

She pointed out that the discoveries helped reconstruct the island's history through the ages, revealing its significance in the Cyclades islands, while adding that the island now needs the corresponding facilities to house these finds. This project was now being examined in collaboration with local authorities.
