With its two connected buildings, the Museum of Cycladic Art rises in the heart of Athens. Since 1986, it houses one of the most important collection of Cycladic Art that flourished in the distinctive Cyclades Islands during the Early Bronze Age (third millennium BC). The main building, constructed in 1985, hosts the permanent collection across four floors. Ancient Greek art, Cyprus culture and Cycladic civilization are interactively illustrated in a contemporary approach. Vases, tools, weapons and jewellery bear witness to the passage of various cultures born in the Aegean Sea and the East Mediterranean. The marble Cycladic figurines, purely shaped and finely sculpted are modelling the museum’s refined esthetic.

Through a closed passageway, the main building is connected to the Stathatos Mansion, an historical Neoclassical piece of architecture from the 19th century in Athens. This second part was established in 1991, to host temporary exhibitions as well as the offices of the institution.
The Museum of Cycladic Art is firmly committed to public engagement, investing in different initiatives and programmes to reach out to different communities of Athens.
