The Benaki Museum
The Benaki Museum hosts, on its three floors, representative works of all time in Greek history and art, from prehistory to modern times. The initial collection of Antonis Benakis is the core of the museum's collection, including works of ancient Byzantine, post-Byzantine, Islamic and traditional art. Its collections also include works of Asian (mainly Chinese) and Coptic art.
The cafeteria of the main building works on the second floor and extends to the roof of the neoclassical building, overlooking the Acropolis, Lycabettus Hill and the National Gardens. On Thursdays, the museum is open until midnight and offers the chance of an atmospheric dinner.
