Beautifully set out on 4 levels concentrating on 4 different themes. It was particularly interesting to view the cycladic art, which is something I'd not really encountered before. A good overview of Ancient Greek life and art. Good cafe!

We had a few extra hours one day and visited this museum. Very nicely done, great descriptions of the art, quite immersive. The lighting also really made you feel one with the art. Definitely worth a visit.

This museum is worth a visit but many of the items inside looked the same after awhile. Many of the vases and other exhibits looked liked the ones in other museums that we have visited. The exhibits are clearly marked and the place was very dark inside.

the collections presented are both very well "scenarized" and pretty. The place is really beautiful and everything has been thought through.

We had only one hour so we had to run through the museum. The exhibitions are indeed beautiful and definitely warrant 3-4 hours of enjoyment. The analogy/counterpoint of cycladic sculptures compared to modern art as well as the Scenes from daily life in antiquity will stay with me for a long time.

This museum has interesting articles of Cycladic period. The figures are intriguing, the facility quite lovely, the dishware beautiful and the staff very friendly.

My Greek friend once presented me a souveneir of a Cycladic image which now is more relevant to me than when I first received it.

This museum is absolutely amazing. It's small, four small floors of the most distinctive art you will ever see. It's also close to a lovely group of small cafes that serve delicious drinks and small plates.

You had the chance to experience life in the Greek islands thousands of years ago through the narratives and the interactive exhibition of the museum.
