The Museum of Cycladic Art is a private living cultural institution in the heart of Athens. More than 3.000 objects of Cycladic, Ancient Greek and Cypriot art (dating from the 5th millennium BC to the 6th century AD) are displayed in the galleries of the four floors of the Museum of Cycladic Art. This summer the museum also hosts two contemporary art exhibitions by artists Jannis Kounelis and Ugo Rondinone. The museum can be accessed either from the entrance from the Stathatos Mansion (1 Irodotou Str & Vasilissis Sofias Avenue) or from the entrance at 4 Neofytou Douka Str & Vasilissis Sofias Avenue.

The collection is amazing. We went there attracted by the oldest Cycladic pieces but this museum offers so much more. You learn the mutual influence of History and Art: hoe the historical events changed the way art was perceived and produced. Loved it!

Very good museum near Syntagma and Benaki museum in Vasilissis Sofias Avenue. The collection is great. You can also study every day life of antiques in this museum but the best part of it is of course a collection of cycladic art. Very inspiring museum.

Not only it is the culmination of the Aegean sea civilisation and all antiquity, it usually has very interesting temporary exhibitions as well. The current one, a juxtaposition of Cy Twombly's mythology inspired works with the relative museum artifacts borrowed by various museums is a...More

It's not the National Archaeological Museum, and it doesn't try to be. This smaller museum takes you on a quick journey through time by presenting art from different periods in Greek history. Even if Cycladic art isn't your thing, take the time to visit this...More

Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighbourhood in town, Kolonaki is
home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label
stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by
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
