The History and Folklore Museum of Milos is housed in a 200-year-old house located in the courtyard of the church of Panagia Korfiatissa, on a hill in Plaka.
This small museum has few rooms but interesting exhibits that depict daily life on Milos island from the 17th century up until a few decades ago.

This folk museum was established in 1967 by the Union of Athenian people of Milos and exhibits pieces of daily life, including traditional costumes, agricultural tools, handloom, kitchen utensils, and old furniture.

The rooms have been specially designed to present the bedroom, the kitchen and the cellar used to store the farm produce. The attic has been transformed into a historical records office.

    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.
