I really enjoyed my visit to this museum. Wish there was more time. The embroidery on display was very impressive. I've yet to see such an extensive collection on exhibit anywhere else. Benaki Museum has a few locations but I highly recommend this one. You can even prepay for the tickets via Google Maps. Map your route from home to make sure you see all you want once they reopen.
Absolutely fantastic. Especially for everybody who is not only interested in ancient Greek history. Very friendly staff and a really nice cafe. Worth to visit. Especially when you have only one or two days in Athens. Go and visit.
