The Byzantine & Christian Museum, one of Greece’s most important public museums, was founded in the early 20th century (1914). The Museum has over 30,000 artefacts organized by subject and collections. They are dated from 3rd century AD to 20th century.
The Byzantine & Christian Museum permanent collections include two main sections. The first is dedicated to the Byzantine period (4th-15th c. AD) while the second, entitled “From Byzantium to the modern era” (15th-20th c.), to the history, culture and art of the Post-Byzantine Period.
