Benaki Museum


Athens Museums

Housed in one of the few neoclassical buildings remaining in central Athens, The Benaki is the oldest museum in Greece. Nestled in the city's historic centre, it lies opposite the green oasis of the National Gardens and is within walking distance of other top museums like the Museum of Cycladic Art.

The museum houses Greek art work dating back from the prehistoric to modern times, as well as a wide variety of Asian art. In addition to this there is a 300 seat amphitheatre for lectures and other events. The atrium and courtyard area which most of the halls open out onto can host outdoor exhibitions, music events and performances.

With so much to see, the museum is open all day to allow visitors to make the most of it, and you can always have a browse of the bookshop or refuel at the restaurant too.

Opening Times:

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday: 9am - 5pm,

Sunday: 9am - 3pm


Full admission: €7

Temporary exhibitions: €5
