  • A great museum to visit. It has four floors. The first is dedicated to the simplicit enigmatic sculptures of the cycladic civilization, the second is about classical ancient greece, the third is about ancient cyprus, and the last a great presentation of the life of an ordinary athenian of the classical times. The museum has great artifacts and is presented in a non boring (suitable for all ages) way. Pairs nicly with the Benaki museum, the archaelogical site of Aristoteles lyceum and the byzantine museum.
  • The history of Greek and Cycladic art thrown into one museum. Shows the progression of sculpture from the simplest of forms and how they were made.
  • Beautiful museum. Nice cafe and fantastic souvenirs.
  • The best of cycladic art in a nice museum close to the Parliament. Definitely to visit, you find stuff that isn't displayed anywhere else.
  • Great museum with interesting exhibitions.
