The Hellenic Museum, Melbourne Reviews
Yes, loved it. Apart from the museum, which is housed in the old Mint, there is a rear outdoor area for small functions with excellent catering. An enclosed area and an outdoor area. I had the privilege of attending a private wedding and then a 50th birthday party. I believe there were 160 guests and there was room for plenty more. Excellent. Highly recommend this place.
The museum is pretty small and have very limited artefacts and very few from ancient Greek times. It's a peaceful place to wander and relax in. Overall, quite interesting but it's a one visit only kind of a place.
Went here Sunday the 1st of April 2018, they were closed with no notice except an a4 piece of paper on the door, very disappointed.
Beautifully curated little museum of Greek antiquities and history, right in the heart of Melbourne. It is a privilege to be able to see these ancient treasures up close without being crammed in with crowds; and there is the incredible bonus of seeing some of Bill Henson's evocative and haunting images in a dedicated exhibition room.
Not a big museum considering Hellenic history. But worth visiting if you're interested
