This exceptional private museum boasts the largest independent collection of distinctive Cycladic art and holds excellent periodic exhibitions of all sorts. The 1st-floor Cycladic collection, dating from 3000 BC to 2000 BC, includes the marble figurines that inspired many 20th-century artists, such as Picasso and Modigliani, with their simplicity and purity of form. The rest of the museum features Greek and Cypriot art dating from 2000 BC to the 4th century AD.

The 4th-floor exhibition, Scenes from Daily Life in Antiquity, includes artefacts and films depicting life in Ancient Greece. There's also a mod cafe .
