This small museum in Plaka, Milos reveals the hidden significance of sand all over the world and especially in Milos where the volcanic activity has left so many samples. Also it is a place where you can buy works of art made by sand .Dont miss it while you are walking around the Plaka.

Wondered into the Sand Museum while visiting Plaka, found it very interesting, with sand from all over the world. You can view different sands through microscopes.

The museum has a collection of sand from all over the world and given the geological significance of Milos this is a very worthwhile museum. The geologist who runs the museum is very passionate.
