Cycladic Art Museum: focusing in the ancient cultures of the Aegean and Cyprus


The Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens is dedicated to the study and promotion of the ancient cultures of the Aegean area and Cyprus. It all began in the 1960s, when Nicholas and Dolly Goulandris began to collect ancient artifacts and Cycladic figurines. As time went on, the collection increased in size and travelled to important museums all over the world. The Museum of Cycladic Art opened its doors to the public in January 1986. Today, over 3,000 artefacts of Cycladic, Ancient Greek and Cypriot art are on display on four floors, in the galleries of the Museum, a living cultural space in the heart of Athens. The Cycladic Art museum has two great assets: an impressive collection of art of a highly informative and educational value. Instead of just presenting the artifacts of the ancient civilization the museum's goal is to offer the visitor information in a fun and in a easy to understand way. At the museum shop you can buy beautiful copies of the famous Cycladic figurines and other precious gifts.
