National Hellenic Museum Good Holiday Visit

November 24, 2018

Coming into the busiest and more festive period of the year between Thanksgiving and Christmas can be overwhelming and distracting but a spot Greek-Americans shouldn’t miss is Chicago’s National Hellenic Museum.

One of the nation’s most unique museums the NHM possesses the biggest collection of Greek American artifacts and recorded oral histories anywhere in the world and has completed two highly unique exhibitions back-to-back within just a few months of each other, Suburban Chicagoland wrote.

The museum has grown over its 35-year history and features educational classes and programs linking generations of Americans to the Hellenic legacy, a rich repository of 20,000+ artifacts, photos, historic newspapers, books and an impressive archive of 450+ recorded histories. New exhibits include Lives Afloat: The Greek Refugee Crisis through the Lens of Tasos Markou 2015-2017, filled with beautiful and telling photographs, and George Kokines: Layers Revealed.
