Collections

As the largest Greek Museum outside of Greece, we preserve over 11,000 artifacts in our state of the art collections vault featuring a temperature and humidity controlled environment. It is our mission to preserve the experiences of the Greek immigration and our cultural history. The collection is growing with new donated items added regularly.

The National Hellenic Museum’s collection spans thousands of years from 800 BCE to today. Its collection includes ancient Cypriot ceramics, vintage photographs, housewares, handmade textiles, traditional costumes, musical instruments, documents, immigrant artifacts, and more.
