The Benaki Museum is a gem. The most fantastic history, absolutely brilliantly curated. Check the admissions - we were lucky enough to arrive on a no entry fee afternoon and wandered around for hours .A must see attraction in Athens.

This private collection covers most of Grecian culture, up to modern art. The collection is well-curated, and is a great tribute to the original owner, who created the museum. For an overview of thousands of years of art and design, this museum is a great stop.

We visited the museum on a Thursday, a day on which entrance is free. The collection is helpfully arranged in chronological order and it is interesting to see how the manufacture and decoration of pots, for example developed through the ages. The display of a room setting was great! The one disappointment was the cafe - it was advertised as being a good place to eat overlooking the National Gardens. We went there three times and it was busy each time. The staff totally ignored us; we could see that some tables had reservation cards on them, so perhaps the only way to get a table is reserve one in advance? We finished visiting the exhibits, left the museum and found somewhere else to eat!

This is absolutely must-see. For all those who hate huge museums, this is a small one, yet pack with thousands of beautiful artifacts, from prehistoric objects, through classical Greek pottery, beautiful jewelry (some looking very modern, by the way), up to 19-century costumes of both peasants, and queen. In this sense, this should be called a National Museum, perhaps. Last but not least, it is equipped with very fancy roof top cafeteria, serving good food and coffee. To conclude, an hour or two very well spent, both for art lovers, and all the other tourists.

This is a wonderful little gem of a museum, especially if you need a break from ancient ruins and artifacts. It has a wonderful collection of items from Greek life and it is in a beautifully restored mansion.
