|About these ratings|
The Benaki Museum focuses on Greek art, from prehistory to the modern age. It is located in a large mansion in downtown Athens, and it also has a satellite location -- the Museum of Islamic Art, about a mile walk away, is a particular standout for those interested in Islamic art from the 1100's to 1800's.
You'll find this museum is open every day but Tuesdays. Admission is free on Thursdays. Basic admission is around 6 euros, but there are exceptions (free for students, teachers, people younger than age 18, etc). For more information on hours and exhibits, check out the Benaki Museum website.
