Kiveli was a famous Greek actress during the 50s and on leaving behind a huge artistic heritage. The tour in her institute is a guided one. Through her adventurous story and her personal items, you will get to know about political families in Greece but also about history of Syros. Don´t miss the veranda view upstairs. Also, ask to see the house inside that her children and grandchildren bought. It is amazing. The best of all_ Entrance is free.

For those who love art and theatre it is the place to visit. It is named after the great Greek actress Kyveli and is in fact a beatiful journey on the history of the Greek theatre and art from the 1900 to today. Also, it is a space that cultural events take place from unique artists that inteconnect with the legacy the Kyveli in a contamporary way.
A place that wins you over not only with its great exhibitions, events and stories but also with the wormth of its people.

Dedicated to the great Greek actor, the Institute of Kyveli (or Cybele), a two-storey mansion of 1870, is more than an experiential museum. It is a modern cultural space, with hosting capabilities, training, conference and entertainment events. It is a true cultural experience worth visiting!

Foul of old fashion clothes from 19th and 20th century, old furniture, letters, pictures and paintings. This is not a museum, is an institute of art.

The most common nickname of Hermoupolis, the city of ancient Greek God Hermes - the God of Commerce, in our days is "The Lady of the Aegean Sea" , resulting from the glorious development during the end of 19th century. Among many achievements through out the golden period of the city was the recognition as a important cultural center of Greece. Appollon theatre is witness of the past, but not the only one.
Walking the cobbled streets and path ways of the city someone may detect "Cyveli's Museum" , a true source of knowledge, a piece of culture history of Greece. Mrs Valentini is ready to welcome you and escort you in the exhibition. If you are looking an alternative experience of HErmoupolis, Cyvelis' Museum is a must.

This is a truly hidden gem in Ermoupolis! I really enjoyed getting a tour of Kiveli's memoirs. I would highly recommend you'd visit to appreciate both the historical and architectural aspect of the Institute.

I will always remember my first visit there when a spring evening a friend drove me to the Institute. Mrs. Valentini, the manager of the Institute, was waiting for us at the entrance holding a music box and as we walked through the alleys of the area its music guided us.

The institute houses a small but excellent and very tasteful exhibition which from time to time has a different theme. Also periodically in that space are arranged some artistic actions like concerts or movies.

In the summer of 2013,a concert to remember was held there. People found on the roof of the place while musicians were standing to the opposite roof. Behind them, the imposing dome of St. Nicholas church, the moon, the Aegean Sea and the ships entering the port.

I really recommend to visitors of Syros call them and arrange a visit there and mainly to meet this very special lady, the heart of Cybele Institute, Mrs. Valentini Potamianou.

Excellent environment with plenty information on the culture of Greece, theatre and the people of the past!

I participated in a trail race on the island and the presentation of it was on the rooftop of Kyveli institute. Summer night with the old city of Ermoupoli around us!

An amazing experience!
