Free entrance at the Benaki Museum every Thursday
03 March 2015

The SNF has renewed its support to the Benaki Museum through a grant which among others offers free admission to all visitors once a week. The program commences on Thursday March5th, and will last for one year. The grant, which runs for a second time, partially covers the operating expenses of the Museum.

During the first year of the program, the visitor numbers to the Museum increased significantly, both to its permanent collections and special exhibitions. All visitors had an equal opportunity to be part of the cultural institution, to renew and enrich their relationship with the Museum.

The Benaki Museum is the oldest museum in Greece, which operates as a Foundation under Private Law since 1930. Its collections include 100.000 artefacts dating from the Palaiolithic period to date. In addition, the museum offers a dynamic program of special exhibitions, educational programs and creative workshops for people of all ages.
