Hi guys, is the Benaki museum worth the trip? I’m backpacking through Europe on a budget, and I’m trying to see what the most “bang for your buck” places are.

If you like Byzantine and more modern Greek history, then yes otherwise the National Archaeological Museum and the Acropolis Museum are far better for ancient artefacts.

It depends what you like seeing in museums. It’s a very well respected, reputable museum with very well researched exhibitions. One of the best in Greece in modern art and other contemporary themes. There are two Benaki museums, check them out and visit the cafe on the very central one! The one in Pireos str is not open every day due to financial problems. Check opening days before you go!

My Greek husband LOVES history and we’re putting together an itinerary for our trip to Athens, any tips? He loves ancient history and modern history, so it doesn’t need to be about mythology and architecture (I know Athens is really popular for that).
