About Byzantine Museum
The Byzantine Museum in Athens contains over 25,000 artefacts of national importance and is a popular attraction for visitors to the Greek capital.
The museum’s vast collection covers the Early Christian, Byzantine, Medieval and post-Byzantine eras. It includes religious artefacts, stunning iconography, sculpture, textiles, paintings, manuscripts, jewels, ceramics and art.
The museum is divided in five main sections: From the ancient world to Byzantium; the Byzantine world; intellectual and artistic activity in the 15th century; from Byzantium to the modern era; Byzantium and modern art.
The artefacts come from all across Greece as well as from nearby regions where Hellenic and Byzantine culture were prominent.
The Acropolis Museum is a museum of Ancient Greece and general Athenian history.
Athens National Archaeological Museum is one of the most prominent of its kind in the world and has over 20,000 pieces.
