What To Expect
We will start our day with a visit to the Art Cycladic Goulandri Museum, which 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. It was founded in 1986, to house the collection of Nicholas and Dolly Goulandris. Since then it has grown in size to accommodate new acquisitions, obtained either through direct purchases or through donations by important collectors and institutions. Today, in the galleries of the MCA you can approach three major subjects: the Cycladic Culture of the Early Bronze Age ( 3200 - 2000 BC), the Ancient Greek Art from the Bronze Age to Late Roman times (2nd millenium BC - 4th century AD), and the Cypriot Culture from the Chalcolithic Age to the Early Christian period (4th millenium BC - 6th century AD).
Just a few steps from there is the Benaki Museum which ranks among the major institutions that have enriched the material assets of the Greek state. It is also the oldest museum in Greece operating as a foundation under private law. Through its extensive collections that cover several different cultural fields and its more general range of activities serving more than one social need, the Benaki Museum is perhaps the sole instance of a complex structure within the broader network of museum foundations in Greece.
