The Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens should be one of your high priority visits during your trip. It is a foundation whose stated mission is the study of Aegean civilization, research on prehistoric, classical and modern Greek art, as well as its dissemination and promotion.
Today, in the galleries of the MCA, the visitor can approach three major subjects:
Cycladic Art (3.200-2.000 BC)
Ancient Greek Art (2.000 BC-AD 395)
Ancient Cypriot Art (3.900 BC-6th c. AD)
It also houses a wide range of activities such as lectures, adult labs, colloquia and programmes for kids and families (during the weekends).
The MCA collections contain approximately 3.000 objects of Cycladic, Ancient Greek and Cypriot Art. More than 500 are presented online, together with brief introduction for the major periods of Aegean and Cypriot archeology, special topics and a list of available resources.
