Museum of Cycladic Art, Athens

4.8
#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.

  • The Museum should not be missed in Athens. Its size is so well suited to the tastes of all that I recommend to families, especially with teens. Its cafeteria is a gem in itself that is worth trying for anyone sensitive to contemporary landscaping. A very good point of departure for the visit of the district.

  • Me and my friend really liked this museum. It was particularly enjoyable because the plaques and descriptions did not reference the plethora of ancient Greek names and places. It was also free for us as either students or under 18 years (not sure which it was). We did not see the temporary exhibit of the American artist due to the museum closing, which was disappointing. It's also close to some nice restaurants.
  • Beautiful and very well organized museum. Start from the top, where an interesting exhibition about life in ancient times. Then go down to see many wonderful artworks. Cafeteria is quite good (but not cheap). 3 hrs at least
