As with other museums run by private foundations this museum has high quality exhibits that are well presented. The cafe is good and staff are friendly and helpful. Good central location.

This is the first museum we went to, and it was very good, but doesn't have lots of "wow" to it. It was laid out chronologically, which was very helpful.

With a really interesting neo-classical archotecture and some contemporary elements, this museum includes a quite extended collection about cycladic culture separated in themed floors. The cafe and shop are also waorth visiting!!!

This is more of a museum of archaeological discoveries than it is "art", but the artifacts are, themselves, pieces of art, if you know what I mean. You don't come here for a lesson on the Praxiteles school of sculpture. But you will find housewares,...More

This is a small museum on three floors near Syntagma Square. The Cycladic Sculptures are amazing. As an added bonus there is an exhibit of Ancient Cyprus pottery and sculpture. It’s a museum you don’t want to miss...only takes an hour to walk through.

Yes, these are the highlight in this museum but there is much more to see. Many aspects of ancient Greek life are covered, the exhibits are excellently presented and there are some video reconstructions of life in the pre Christian era. Maps, charts and narrative...More

This is a relatively small museum with stunning artefacts displayed in context and in a time-line. Well worth an hour or two and probably of more interest to children than some other museums because of the top floor displays showing scenes from daily life. It...More

This museum contains more than Cycladic art. Start at the top floor and work your way down. The displays on ancient Greek life on the top floor should not be missed as they show how different that ancient culture was from ours and place Greek...More

The Cycladic Art Museum is definitely worth a visit. There are only about 2000 pieces of Cycladic art ever found, and there’s a big variety at the museum. It was interesting to see the progression of how it changes. Mondays are only €3.50.

dressing in their finest and spending hours in the
trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most
expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a
couple of notable museums and cultural institutions,
which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper
