We had the opportunity to visit the museum during the exhibition As part of the celebrations for the Year of Constantine Cavafy about the Illustrating poems. It was great. Keep up the good work.

Not easy to find. Walking distance from the parliament. Signage is poor, so locate before hand and do ask (Athenians know their museums) 4 stories, start from top and go down. Basically this is art found in the Aegean Islands, Crete, and Cypros ~3000BC I recommend this being the first stop, followed by the National museum and thirdly by the... More

Ok so we are here for a month and have the time to go back...but if you are only here for a short time I would put this museum on your must see list! It is not very large so it is not as overwhelming as a lot of the other museums and the displays are informative. Pieces that were... More

My husband and I had not intended to visit this museum, but found ourselves there one afternoon after a day trip didn't work out. I'm really glad we went!

A cool haven, with lovely staff. Well curated, and ideal especially for fans of Picasso or Modigliani. Nice little cafe. Worth the walk from the centre - go through the Botanic Gardens, as we did.....................

The Museum of Cyclic Art is small but great. We specially enjoyed the cycladic art wing, the "life in ancient Athens" wing, and the contemporary art exhibition being currently shown.

Cycladic culture flourished on the islands of the central Aegean during the Early Bronze Age (3rd millennium BC) Simply unique and classical . It is nice if you like old classical greek hand works. .
