We "discovered" this lovely museum when we visited 20+ years ago and it is still special.. It is a comprehensive exhibit about the Cycladic period - very well presented and described. Definitely worth the visit. It is also located in a fashionable area of Athens.

This is a small museum -- an hour is sufficient to visit. But it is well organized and has a very good representation of what you see at the museums on Santorini. I would choose this museum over the Benaki if time was a factor.

dressing in their finest and spending hours in the
trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most
expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a
couple of notable museums and cultural institutions,
which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper
