Hellenic Museum

Hellenic Museum

Australia's only museum dedicated to showcasing the transformational power of Greek art, history & culture.

A cultural hub supporting arts, film, and visual performance Australia wide, with a Hellenic flavour.

Housed in the historic Former Royal Mint building, the Museum is home to the long-term collection Gods, Myths & Mortals: Greek Treasures Across the Millennia from the iconic Benaki Museum, Athens.

The collection provides a snapshot of Greek history, from Classical, to Byzantine, Post-Byzantine, and Neo-Hellenic, winding through 8,000 years of Greek civilisation around the ground floor of the Mint, including the original gold vault.

The Museum holds events throughout the year, from the popular Summer Cinema program, to theatre, live music, and lectures.


The Hellenic Museum was founded in 2007 and our mission is to inspire Australians about Hellenic culture from the ancient to the contemporary.

The Hellenic Museum is a not-for-profit organisation run by a team of passionate professionals and volunteers.

The Hellenic Museum is focused on building artistic partnerships with Greek and non-Greek artists, reimagining Greek culture through a contemporary lens.

By bringing together multiple artistic disciplines and perspectives, the Hellenic Museum presents a holistic experience of Greek culture and the contribution it has made, and continues to make, to society today.
