Benaki Museum - The Stavros Niarchos Foundation

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation is providing the public one year of free entrance, once a week, to the four buildings of the Benaki Museum. Free entrance to the Central Building (1 Koumbari St.), the Piraios Street Annexe, the Museum of Islamic Art and the Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika Gallery will be in effect every Thursday from 15 July 2013 for one year.

 Since 2012, the Foundation provides support to the Benaki Museum in order to bolster its operations.

 The Benaki Museum ranks among the major institutions that have enriched the material assets of the Greek state. It is also the oldest museum in Greece operating as a Foundation under Private Law. Through its extensive collections that cover several different cultural fields and its more general range of activities serving more than one social need, the Benaki Museum is perhaps the sole instance of a complex structure within the broader network of museum foundations in Greece.
