Lina Mendoni Inaugurates Renovated Milos Museum

ATHENS – Culture and Sports Minister Lina Mendoni on Friday inaugurated the recently renovated Milos Archaeological Museum and a new temporary exhibition on ancient grave goods, which showcases recent discoveries made in previously unknown locations and ancient graveyards on the island, dating back to Mycenean, archaic and Roman-era periods. These are now being shown to the general public for the first time.

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 a higher-quality tourism. She noted 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, a project which was now being examined in collaboration with local authorities.

The inauguration ceremony was attended by local authority officials for the Cyclades islands and representatives of the local council.
