“The world’s most extensive collection of ancient Cycladic art. The main building was completed in 1980. Temporary exhibitions are held in the Stathatos Mansion, a neoclassical residence with a porticoed entrance, roof statuary and atrium. A glass-topped internal walkway connects the two wings. Established in 1986 to house the private collection of the Goulandris shipping family, it focuses on ancient cultures of the Aegean, especially that of the Cyclades during the 3rd millennium BC. Must-see: The most prized exhibits are the Cycladic figurines. These idols—from the schematic, spade-shaped Early Cycladic (c3200 BC) figurine to the precisely defined 1.40-metre tall female statue from Keros (c2800-2300 BC)—comprise the core of the collection.”

“A vividly curated trove of stunning sculptures, ceramics, and other treasures from the Acropolis.The 14,000 square-metre glass and concrete landmark, designed by the architect Bernard Tschumi, was completed in 2009.Beyond the obvious reason that it houses the treasures of the Acropolis, the museum has also consistently figured on lists of the world’s top 10 museums, both for its contents and its design.The grounds of the early 19th-century Weiler Building, which had been used in the 1930s as an army barracks and later gendarmerie. It now houses the Acropolis Studies Centre. Must-see: The Parthenon Gallery on the top floor is ingeniously designed to recreate the magnificent temple’s frieze, using cast copies of sections currently in the British Museum and other collections. ”

“ A trove of religious art and artefacts from the Byzantium, housed in an enchanting monastery-style building and gardens. It wa built in 1848, in the style of a Florentine palace. A 12,000-sqm underground wing was added in the 1990s. With more than 25,000 artefacts in its possession, the museum’s collection of Early Christian, Byzantine and Medieval religious artefacts is unsurpassed in size and scope. Must-see: While Byzantine culture was almost entirely concerned with religious expression, the diversity of the techniques, subjects and approaches used throughout the Byzantine Empire is extraordinary. Look out for miniature sculptures on themes such as the ‘Descent into Hell’ and a ninth-century relief carving of the ‘Tree of Life’.”

“One of the greatest museums in the world with the richest collection of Greek artefacts from neolithic to classical times.Construction began in 1866 to a design by Ludwig Lange and was completed in 1889 by Ernst Ziller.It’s one of the world’s top collections of Greek antiquities and certainly the richest, with the 11,000 items on permanent display comprising just half of the museum’s holdings.With some 8,000 square metres of exhibition space, it’s hard to take in this panorama of Greek civilisation and achievement in a single visit. So it’s best to either stick to the most celebrated exhibits or focus on a single gallery or theme. Must-see: There is so much not to miss that this truly depends on your interests. The ‘Mask of Agamemnon’, the Santorini frescoes, the bronze Zeus or Poseidon and the ‘Jockey of Artemision’ are among the most popular exhibits. ”
