"Benaki Museum (one of the best in the city.)" Benaki Museum Tip by OiKnow

Benaki Museum, Athens: 10 reviews and 12 photos

Benaki was a Greek art collector who left his extrodinary collection to the people. The collection is among the best in the city. The collection features small sculpture, glass, ceramics, pottery, silver, and gold. There are two complete room interiors and displays on the history of Greece the fight for Greek independance. No cameras are allowed and bags had to be checked. The gift and reproduction shop had a wonderful selection (the best I saw in the city.) Don't miss this one.
