The National Hellenic Museum: Modern Meets Museum
I know that I am a little bit late to the party on this one, but after many postponed or cancelled attempts (due to illness, changed travel plans, and mini-blizzards), we finally made it to the National Hellenic Museum last Friday. This Museum has been generating a lot of buzz since its opening a few months ago. After having the chance to check it out, I can definitely see what all of the fuss is about. The National Hellenic Museum aims to bring Greek history and culture to life in a modern-day setting -- and it is the focus on the modern day that really sets this Museum apart from most others. Everything about this place has a modern feel incorporated into it -- from the sleek, minimalist design to the emphasis on using technology to connect visitors to the past. Smart phones are definitely welcome here...
