The Museum of Cycladic Art is a private living cultural institution in the heart of Athens. More than 3.000 objects of Cycladic, Ancient Greek and Cypriot art (dating from the 5th millennium BC to the 6th century AD) are displayed in the galleries of the four floors of the Museum of Cycladic Art. This summer the museum also hosts two contemporary art exhibitions by artists Jannis Kounelis and Ugo Rondinone. The museum can be accessed either from the entrance from the Stathatos Mansion (1 Irodotou Str & Vasilissis Sofias Avenue) or from the entrance at 4 Neofytou Douka Str & Vasilissis Sofias Avenue.

Looking at ancient figures that look an awful like 20th century sculpture was a bit spooky. This is a very nice smaller museum well laid out with excellent signage explaining the exhibits. Don't miss it.

This is a small and interesting collection of artifacts. Perhaps if we hadn't already been to the National Archaeological Museum and Acropolis Museum we would have a different opinion, but most of the offerings were very similar to those found in the other museums. The...More

Perhaps the most interesting museum in Athens. The museum is small, but there are excellently preserved things from the ancient Cycladic art (second floor); on the third floor there are works of art from ancient Greece (Bronze Age, Geometric period, Archaic period to Roman times)....More

For me the highlight of the collection are the figurines. Simple and genuine, pure and elegant representing the essence of humanity, that did not really change over a period of 5000 years. The Cycladic and Minoan civilizations were Island cultures, but well connected with other...More

It is not unusual to think that ancient Greece began with the construction of the Parthenon. A trip to the Cycladic Museum takes you back another 3000 years. It is a fascinating collection of some of the oldest artifacts in Greece.

This is a museum built around a private collection of sculpture and other artifacts from the Cyclades. The collection has been donated to this museum which is now public. With the proviso that most of the artifacts there were not found by scientific excavations, and...More

Although labeled Museum of Cycladic Art, this Museum has only a fraction of its space dedicated to Cycladic Art due to the rarity of the works. But what they have is outstanding. The rest of the Museum displays various aspects of Ancient Greek arts and...More

Very near Constitution Square. We combined a visit to this lovely museum with a visit to nearby Museum of Byzantine and Christian Art. Cycladic Art is displayed on 4 floors (yes, there's an elevator). Highlights are the amazing sculptures/figurines that date back to 3000 BC....More

All of this stuff is so ancient and interesting , plus the museum is small and uncrowded. There is a great little restaurant within that is a boon for tired tourists. Worth a trip.

By far the ritziest neighbourhood in town, Kolonaki is
home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label
stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by
dressing in their finest and spending hours in the
trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most

which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper
