History seen through the objects of the Museum
Every Thursday from November 2013 through to May 2014, the curators of the Greek collections of the Benaki Museum await you, to narrate the stories hidden behind the short titles of the exhibition, to respond to any questions, to share with you the joy of a journey that commences at the dawn of prehistory and leads up to the twentieth century.
