NHS Boston Chapter was pleased to have members & friends meet the amazing team of the Benaki Museum at the Harvard Museum of Natural History. The Benaki Museum was donated to the Greek nation in 1930 and was inaugurated in April 1931. Over the years it has emerged as one of the most innovative cultural foundations in Europe and has stood as a beacon for the Greek diaspora, to which its founder, Antonis Benakis, belonged. The Museum's extensive collections of Greek and world art are constantly enriched and since the 1990s they are being re-housed in a network of ten buildings around Athens and beyond. The Benaki Museum team will deploy the range of activities and collections offered to the public, will explain how the Museum braved the Greek crisis through rational management and visionary approaches and will present the major 2021 exhibition organized to celebrate the Greek Revolution bicentenary. Guests at the event enjoyed learning about the history of the Benaki Museum and a reception following the event.
