Housed in the historic Former Royal Mint building, the Museum is home to the long-term collection Gods, Myths & Mortals: Greek Treasures Across the Millennia from the iconic Benaki Museum, Athens. The collection provides a snapshot of Greek history, from Classical, to Byzantine, Post-Byzantine, and Neo-Hellenic, winding through 8,000 years of Greek civilisation around the ground floor of the Mint, including the original gold vault.
From October 2015 the Museum is the new home to Sean Godsell's award-winning MPavilion.
The Museum holds events throughout the year, from the popular Summer Cinema program, to theatre, live music, and lectures.
The first floor is currently closed due to infrastructure works, set to reopen mid-2016.
Hellenic Museum Reviews
メルボルン観光のメインのひとつとして行った博物館。 内容は常設展が先史時代からギリシャ・ローマ時代までの調度品の展示、特設展は金を用いた装飾品の展示でした。金細工でデコレーションされたベルトや団扇などすばらしい展示品があって楽しかったです。また、日本にいると馴染みのないギリシャ・ローマ時代の壺やレリーフなどこちらも貴重な物を見ることができました。 more »The museum was one of the main attractions of Melbourne tourism. The permanent exhibition was an exhibition of furnishings from prehistoric times to the Greek and Roman periods, and the special exhibition was an exhibition of gold ornaments. It was fun to have great exhibits such as gold-decorated belts and fan.... I was also able to see valuable things such as greek and Roman vases and reliefs that i was not familiar with in Japan.
This is a museum devoted to Greek history and culture from prehistoric times. It is in the former Royal Mint building which is particularly beautiful among all the other modern skyscrapers around it. ... more »
There was a wonderful knowledgeable lady at the counter who helped us decide to come back and spend more time at the museum. Good advice. It is a lovely collection.
Amazing experience seeing all the historic Hellenic artefacts and exhibitions. Would recommend to everyone. Absolutely amazing!!
