Museum of Cycladic Art, Athens

#4 of 71 in Museums in Athens
Admire the private collection of Nicholas and Dolly Goulandris at Museum of Cycladic Art, housed inside a neoclassical mansion. The collection of Cycladic art (works from an ancient civilization that once existed on Aegean Islands) includes pottery, ceramics, art, sculpture, and jewelry. The one-of-a-kind galleries, once the private rooms of the Goulandris, are accessible throughout the year and a popular stop on a tour of Athens. Visit the museum's website to learn about temporary exhibits. Plan my trip to Athens with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • Great collection, well laid out. That rare thing: a museum where I actually felt like I was learning a lot, rather than just looking at a bunch of interesting objects. The first floor in particular should be a must-see. All housed in a beautiful building, with a great cafe.
  • One of the best museums to visit when in Athens. The exhibitions are perfectly structured and give the visitor exactly what he needs to know about the Cycladic civilization. Descriptions both in Greek and English and there are also audio guides in different languages. Easy to access by public transport very close to Syntagma square. The shop is also really nice and the coffee place inside. Many activities and workshops for children offered. Worth to visit.
