#2 of 97 Museums in Athens
The current one, a juxtaposition of Cy Twombly's mythology inspired works with the relative museum artifacts borrowed by various museums is a joy to explore.
In a city with many wonderful museums, this one is a stand-out.

#4 of 97 Museums in Athens
Beautifully appointed, well maintained and containing enough history and artifacts to fill three museums, the Benaki is truly one of the gems to visit during a stop in Athens.
We walked to the Benaki through the the main gardens and while it is a little hard to find the entrance, this is a very high quality bite-sized museum and a good introduction to some of the larger museums in Athens.
