Expert review of Museum of Cycladic Art
Like many of Greece’s finest museums, this one is privately owned (by the Goulandris shipping dynasty). The main attraction is the mysterious marble figurines, arms folded above smooth bellies. Their abstract form and enigmatic expression continues to intrigue archaeologists and artists. Their featureless faces make you wonder not only what they were for, but also what they’re thinking. There are also vessels, tools and weapons, mainly from the Bronze Age. On the fourth floor is a fascinating virtual tour of daily life in ancient Greece. The café is a peaceful spot for lunch – a charming little courtyard favoured by the blue-rinse brigade.
€7, 19-26 year-olds €2.5, over 65 €3.5, free for under 18s.
