Benaki Museum

Established in 1930, the museum houses prehistoric to modern Greek art and artifacts, occasionally hosting exhibitions, and restoration and conservation workshops. The collection features Paleolithic and Neolithic relics, and covers the late Roman Empire as it merged into the Byzantine Empire. There is also an attached Museum of Islamic Art, and separate exhibitions on Chinese and Coptic art.
