Islands off the Beaten Track is the name of a series of archaeological exhibitions organised by and hosted at the Museum of Cycladic Art, in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. The displays focus on the most remote, inaccessible, small and medium-sized islands of the Aegean archipelago, namely Kastellorizo, Symi, Halki, Tilos and Nisyros. They include some of the farthest removed and least known regions of Greece in which people have lived and worked, and whose works and culture will be highlighted in separate exhibitions.

The exhibition will begin with a presentation of the islands' geographical, geological, geophysical and other features, and goes on to describe their mythology and history through a multitude of architectural and other artefacts that highlight their human presence: human society, occupations, interests, allegiances, beliefs, customs and manners. In addition to the ancient artefacts, wall panels and captions, there will also be maps, pictures, photographs and brief videos about each region, as well as time charts showing every island's main period of development. A related microsite will provide information about the exhibition and opportunities to comment (blog). The exhibition opened on December 9, 2011, and will run through April 23, 2012.
