Event Details

The National Archaeological Museum in Athens continues “The Unseen Museum” project and welcomes New Year with the blessing of Dionysos. This new exhibit will be hosted in the Hall of the Altar from January 4, 2016 to March 20, 2016. In the context of “The Unseen Museum” project, the National Archaeological Museum presents to the public every two months an object hidden until now in the museum’s storerooms. Beneath the bustling with life halls of the museum an altogether different world of statues, gold jewellery, valuable bronze vessels and personal everyday objects is hidden. One after the other, some of these objects emerge from their secure state of obscurity into the light inviting the museum’s friends to capture their stories and narratives. The blessing of Dionysos is an Attic red-figure calyx krater (vase used for mixing wine with water) with a representation of Dionysos, a Nike, a Satyr and mantle youths, wishing a happy life and victory over death. The presentations focused on the blessing of Dionysos will be held in Greek but guided tours in English at the museum can be arranged upon request (+30 213 2144800). For more info: www.namuseum.gr Opening Hours: Monday: 13:00 – 20:00, Tuesday – Sunday: 09:00 – 16:00.
