Ancient Greek Art
WHAT: The permanent collection of Ancient Greek Art at the Cycladic Museum comprises painted vases, terracotta figurines, bronze vessels, stone sculptures, coins, gold jewellery and glass items, covering a wide time span from the 2nd millennium BC to the 4th c. AD. During this long period, major socio-political events took place, including the rise of Greek city-states, the establishment of democracy and the appearance of the first Mediterranean empires. Each of these developments left its imprint on art, producing images which reflect different social values and ideologies. The exhibition on the 2nd floor of the museum provides a comprehensive overview of historical, artistic and technological developments in the course of ancient Greek history. The exhibition on the 4th floor offers a vivid glance on everyday life in Classical Athens, accompanied with rich educational material.
WHEN: Open every day from 10am to 5pm except on Sundays from 11am to 5p. Closed on Tuesdays.
