  • This is far from the largest museum in Athens, but it is one of the very best, with five floors of high-quality exhibits. It's the best I saw in Greece for actually having English explanations of what...  more »
  • The Museum of cycladic art is worth the view once there you will see exhibits that come from the depths of time a culture developed in the cycladic Islands equal after the sinking of the Aigiidas and before the cover graining that today are known as Aegean Sea

  • Excellent collection of cycladic art and art excibitions
  • Interesting museum with various collections and a temporary exhibition by Ai Weiwei.
  • Lovely small museum housed in an old building. One of the largest collections of Cycladic are in the world. For kids (and adults too) there is a permanent exhibition called "Scenes from Daily Life in Antiquity" on the 4th floor which is really well done. Takes you on a little 'tour' of what life was like back then showcasing ancient artifacts with images of people who are using these objects. The exhibit integrates film, photos and actual objects. Very cool. Nice little museum shop as well with some handmade ceramics in addition to books, jewellry, etc.
  • What a jem. Nicely curated and beautiful art that makes you think about civilisation. A must see!
  • Astonishing museum offering a time travel to ancient Greece!
