Founded in 2007 by Spiros Stamoulis and based in the heart of Melbourne’s inner city, the Hellenic Museum embodies a commitment to Greek history, art, and culture. The space hosts exhibitions from contemporary Greek and Greek Australian artists, and houses a permanent collection of antiquities. After announcing the securement of a partnership with the world-renowned Benaki Museum in Greece in 2013, the Hellenic Museum opened the exhibition Gods, Myths & Mortals in September of 2014, showcasing an extensive permanent collection of antiquities from the Benaki’s treasures for the next ten years.
