Owner description: The Benaki Museum was founded in 1930 by Antonis Benakis and presents the historical and cultural development of the Greek nation. Through its extensive collections that cover several different cultural fields –from the age of Roman domination to the medieval Byzantine period and from the fall of Constantinople to the struggle for Greek independence in 1821- the Benaki Museum is perhaps the sole instance of a complex structure within the broader network of museum foundations in Greece.

Something for everybody, from costumes to ancient art. Too much to absorb in one visit so take a break in the cafeteria to regain your strength.

..a nice museum attached. Lunch here is quite entertaining - surrounded by aging Greek ladies in extraordinary outfits and hairstyles - not a grey hair to be seen. Sitting outside on a spring or autumn day is a delight. Food is OK and they had a very nice house white last time I ate there

The museum is well worth a wander through with a considerable range of interesting and diverse rooms. I found the furniture very interesting.


The shop is worth visiting for the jewelry. My wife is very happy with her purchases - very good handmade silver bracelets etc.
