A cultural hub supporting arts, film, and visual performance Australia wide, with a Hellenic flavour.
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 will be 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.
The Hellenic Museum is in the heart of the City of Melbourne, conveniently located on the corner of La Trobe and Williams Street just across from Flagstaff train station and is on the City Circle tram loop. There is ample parking for visitors including short term drop-off areas for large buses.
