A dynamic cultural institute in the centre of Athens, the Museum of Cycladic Art (MCA) focuses on promoting the ancient cultures of the Aegean and Cyprus, with particular emphasis on Cycladic art of the third millennium BC. The Museum of Cycladic Art’s temporary exhibitions focus on archaeology and modern and contemporary art with the aim to familiarize the public with important twentieth and twenty-first century artists and to explore the relations between ancient cultures and contemporary art.
Today, the MCA contains over 3.000 artefacts of Cycladic, Ancient Greek and Ancient Cypriot Art, which provide testimony to the cultural developments and interactions that took place in the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean from the 4th millennium BC to the 6th c. AD. The MCA is a private institution functioning under the auspices of the Nicholas and Dolly Goulandris Foundation (a non-profit organization) and the supervision of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture & Sports.
