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. The visitors of the museum have the chance to witness the sublime ancient creations of great historical and aesthetic value.  

However, what makes this museum one of a kind is the fact that it creates a vibrant and momentous connection between ancient Greek art and 21st contemporary art production. For instance, during the past few years the museum has been experimenting with presenting renowned contemporary and modern art creators from all over the world. Artworks by Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Sarah Lucas, Ugo Rodinone, Martin Kippenberger, Mario Merz and Ai Weiwei have been showcased at the museum, resulting in the transformation of the 19th century neoclassical Stathatos Mansion into a unique contemporary art studio!

Hence, the Museum of Cycladic Art is beyond compare - THE place for creative minds and art lovers who believe that art is to be examined and appreciated as a whole entity rather than a collection of art movements through time.
