  • Humble beautiful and educational exhibits are not essential but educational explanations on the ancient life of 7000 BC until the Roman period are amazing the place is very beautiful and more

  • 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!
