BENAKI MUSEUM

The Benaki Museum is best described as the museum of Greek Civilization in all its manifestations. It was founded by Antonis Benakis in 1930 and subsequently donated to the Greek state in 1931. It presents the historical and cultural development of Hellenism within its geographical and evolutionary context, from prehistory to the present.

Its priceless collections depict masterpieces from the Neolithic Age, the Antiquity and the Roman Era to the Byzantine Age, and from the fall of Constantinople, the period of Frankish rule and the Ottoman Occupation, to the outbreak of the Greek War of Independence in 1821. The collections also include works of art from the time of the formation of the Modern Greek State until the Asia Minor Catastrophe in 1922.
