Create an itinerary including Museum of Cycladic Art
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.

  • One of the most beautiful museums in the center of Athens. A unique collection of Cycladic artifacts, a comprehensive collection of the ancient Hellenic arts. Great cafe and gift shop.
  • We went on a Saturday visit, my husband, our daughter and I. The way the artefacts are showcased and explained makes the experience going through the 3 floors rather enjoyable in addition the curators had been mindful of the children too. So our visit was an equal delight for us the adults and our young child. Having travelled to few Cycladic islands, this cultural education visit made it even more special and fascinating. We ended our visit with a stop at the airy and pleasant cafeteria. There is a souvenirs area with great gifting ideas. PS: You will need proof of the Covid19 vaccination to be allowed in.
