The Museum of Cycladic Art houses one of the most complete private collections of Cycladic art worldwide, with representative examples of figurines and vases, tools, weapons, and pottery from all phases of the distinctive Cycladic island culture that flourished in the central Aegean during the Early Bronze Age (third millennium BC).
Marble carving is the most characteristic product of Cycladic culture, and the abstract forms of its figurines have influenced several twentieth and twenty-first century artists, such as Constantin Brancusi, Amedeo Modigliani, Alberto Giacometti, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, and Ai Weiwei. You can find copies of the masterpieces of Cycladic Art in the Museum’s e-shop.
Children and parents are introduced to the Museum’s amazing world through storytelling, interactive tours, art workshops, theatre, photography, and music. English-speaking and bilingual children can take part in specific programs, while for a customized tour and educational program designed for your family’s needs and interests, you can directly contact the Museum.
