The Museum of Cycladic Art has 3000 exhibits from the 4th century to 6th century AD. All exhibits are displayed in a modern building that is built to be user friendly, so guests can move from section to section in one direction. The ancient Cycladic artifacts came from the islands of the Aegean Sea. Most items or exhibits were from historical time off 3300 to 1100 BCE. The civilization of Cycladic people was as advanced as a Minoan and Mycenaean civilization during a similar period. Thus Cycladic artifacts of art are considered equivalent to Aegean art.
