ATHENS WORTH SEEING BENAKI MUSEUM

BENAKI MUSEUM
The Benaki Museum was founded by Anthony Benaki in 1930 and is the largest independent museum in Greece. It is the first Greek museum which came into being through a collector's love for his country. Its wide collections are constantly enriched by purchases, and contributions by its many benefactors. The collections of Greek art, spanning from prehistory to the modern times, is exhibited in this refurbished neo-classical building in the center of Athens.

The Benaki Museum ranks among the great benefactions which have enriched the material assets of the Greek state. At the same time, it is the oldest museum in Greece, which functions as a Foundation under Private Law. Through its extensive collections covering several different cultural fields, as well as its more general range of activities which serve more than one social need, the Benaki Museum is perhaps the sole instance of a complex structure within the wider network of museum foundations in Greece.
