Hellenic Museum


The Hellenic Museum is Australia’s only museum dedicated to showcasing the transformational power of Greek art, history and culture.

Science, politics, philosophy and democracy are just some of the gifts the ancient Greeks gave the world. At the Hellenic Museum, discover that these are not dead concepts or stale history lessons, but a live framework for progressive thought.

Experience 8,000 years of Greek civilisation from Neolithic treasures to bold contemporary art. Old and new collide in eight exhibitions across two floors of the former Royal Mint building, including Gods, Myths & Mortals from the Benaki Museum, Athens, photography by Bill Henson, a collection of genuine Olympic torches, and more.

The themes explored in these exhibitions are enhanced by a robust calendar of public programs and events, including the popular Summer Cinema, theatre, live music, school holiday workshops and lectures
