Museum of Cycladic Art of Athens


The Museum of Cycladic Art is dedicated to the study and promotion of ancient cultures of the Aegean and Cyprus, with special emphasis on Cycladic Art of the 3rd millennium BC.

It was founded in 1986, to house the collection of Nicholas and Dolly Goulandris. Since then it has grown in size to accommodate new acquisitions, obtained either through direct purchases or through donations by important collectors and institutions.

Today, in the galleries of the MCA the visitor can approach three major subjects, a) Cycladic Art 3200-2000 BC, b) Ancient Greek Art 2000BC-AD 395 &c) Ancient Cypriot Art 3900 BC – 6th c. AD
