Cycladic Art Museum in Athens, Greece
Athens Museums - The Cycladic Art Museum in Athens, Greece proudly showcases a collection of ancient artifacts belonging to the Goulandris family. Starting in the 1960s, the couple obtained permission from the Greek Ministry of Culture to collect archaeological sites, with a focus on pieces from the 3rd millennium BC. The first items were publicly displayed in 1978 at the Benaki Museum in Athens, and in 1986, after Nicholas Goulandris passed away, his widow generously donated the entire collection to the Greek state. The Museum of Cycladic Art was then established in that same year, offering visitors a unique glimpse into the ancient history and culture of Greece.
