It's all Greek to me: National Hellenic Museum

Hey guys, once again it's Marissa here to tell you all about great new venues in town for you to check out! This week Maya and I got to visit the National Hellenic Museum. Now I know what you are all thinking, what in the world does Hellenic mean? Trust me don't feel bad if you didn't know, I myself have very little knowledge in anything Greek, but this word is easy. Hellenic is basically another word for Greek. So everything that is Greek food, culture, or language, therefore, is Hellenic. So in other words this week we got to visit the National Greek Museum. If you have any desire to visit Greece or just learn about the culture, the National Hellenic is the place for you. The outside of the building might not be a Parthenon, but once you walk through the doors your world is transformed into a world full of rich culture and history. With plenty of ongoing and rotating exhibitions, the National Hellenic Museum offers plenty of ways for you to learn and understand the Greek culture. The museum also offers events throughout the year open to the public, whether it being Greek storytelling, a Greek dance class, or putting on performances such as the Trial of Megacles, there are plenty of ways to find yourself lost in Greece.

Of course, in addition to the amazing events that the National Hellenic Museum provides, the Museum space can also be rented out for weddings, receptions or business events. It's a great venue for anyone who enjoys Greek culture or wants a unique place to hold an event. The Museum has an amazing rooftop area that overlooks the beauty of downtown Chicago and, in addition, offers three different venue spaces that all have amazing natural light perfect for any event. 

Whether you are in need of a venue for your next event or just want to learn more about Greek culture, the National Hellenic Museum is the place for you! Make sure to visit today!
