  • National Hellenic Museum
    Ancient Greece formed the foundation for western civilization, and its influence can still be felt to this day. Open since 1983, the National Hellenic Museum celebrates this influence by examining the American experience through the lens of Greek culture, both from ancient times and today. The Building: In 2011, the museum moved to its current digs, a gleaming limestone 40,000-square-foot structure. Greek-American and Chicagoan Demetrios Stavrianos, architect with RTKL Associates, designed it with inspiration from Greek monastaries and classic architecture Permanent Mainstay: The Story of Greek Independence, which depicts the the 12 year battle told through artwork, writing, and artifacts, including a book of lithographs printed in 1828 Past Exhibits: The Spirit of the Marathon: From Pheidippides to Today, which traced the history of the marathon, from Pheidippides famed run announcing Greece's victory over the Persians to Chicago's famous annual event New Exhibits: The Greek Monsters opens on September 25 and explores vivid ancient Greek mythology through various installations, sculptures, graffiti, and audio-visual technology. Each neo-black-style figure is accompanied by an original poem on the design philosophy or practice the exhibit stands for. Pro Tip: On Sunday afternoons, for just one hour, docents lead free tours of the museum Special Programs: Those wanting to delve deeper can take Greek language and culture classes hosted by the museum The Neighborhood: The museum is located in Greektown, just steps away from the city's most authentic Greek eateries
