  • Small art museum , Amazing to visit just 5 minutes walk from Pegasus Hotel. Nice Collection n pic good to view. Love it.

  • The Hellenic Museum has a wonderful, but very small, collection showing the highlights of Greek antiquity, ranging from 5000 year old bronze objects, statues and pottery through to manuscripts, books, weapons and traditional clothing. Well worth supporting and encouraging more acquisitions. Great place to educate today's youth about the origins of western civilisation, art, culture and politics.

  • Amazing little museum that I didn't know from my own town. Also a great venue use to host a party. Thay have a great space for functions at the rear of the museum.

  • Wonderful place to experience a great civilization needed a lot more time there.

  • 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.
