Museum of Cycladic Art

The originals are out of reach for now, but you can still see world-class art without the queues or ticket prices, with an online tour of the Museum of Cycladic Art.

The Athens museum is offering an online tour of its landmark exhibition “Cycladic Society: 5,000 Years Ago,” which was first hosted by the museum in 2016, under the supervision of its director, Professor Nikolaos Stampolidis.

Presented as part of efforts to mark the museum’s 30th anniversary, the online exhibition explores the structure of Cycladic society during the early Bronze Age (3200 to 2000 BC), the natural environment, the occupations of the islands’ inhabitants, their social or religious customs and their beliefs, through selected items of the early Cycladic culture.

Internet users (visitors) are given a glimpse of the Cycladic islands as they were 5,000 years ago through texts, photographs, videos, maps, timelines and excerpts from the exhibition catalogue.
