Award Winners

07 August 2015

Yesterday evening the Hellenic Museum was awarded a prestigious Victorian Museum Award from Museum Australia for the exhibition Gods, Myths & Mortals.

Commended for punching above our weight, and praised for both the quality and duration of the exhibition from Greece's The Benaki Museum. The team at the Museum worked diligently with the Benaki to transform the space of the Former Royal Mint, and to ambitiously bring the items to life in their Australian home for the next ten years.

Accepting the award on the night was CEO John Tatoulis. The Museum would like to thank our supporters, benefactors and sponsors, as well as the State Government of Victoria for helping to make this unique initiative a reality.
