I was biased when I visited this museum because I'd just been in the Cyclades Islands for a week before arriving in Athens so that I had a ton of interest in the relics found there. They've done a great job of displaying the history of the arts in these islands (and around Greece) in a way that forces you to contemplate the beauty of a three thousand year old painted vase, but really is forcing you to say to yourself, "They made this that long ago? And it still looks this beautiful?" Coming from North American, I had studied Greek history in school, but to see the actual creations displayed in this way was eye opening for me. I'm not sure if a visitor without a background interest in Greek arts would love this, but I thought it was well worth a visit. It's located on an unattractive very busy Athens street but it's an oasis in itself and had a stylish little cafe inside.
