    Small and cute
    You'll probably pass million times next to this museum while in Plaka, so why not visit it?
    The museum is relatively small but full of items used in everyday-life of citizens of Milos.
    The "warmest" part of the concept is that the articles were donated by regular people - clothes, machines, irons, stools... old things they had in their houses, boxes, basements... and it makes it look domestic and common.
