We take a look at the new National Hellenic Museum in Greektown, which features a full-sized Trojan Horse, and a look at the role immigrants played in building Chicago on Arts Across Illinois, on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm.
The new National Hellenic Museum is the only major museum in the United States dedicated to telling the story of Greek history, culture, and art from ancient times to today.
At 40,000 square feet, the state-of-the-art facility holds an extensive collection and archives of more than 17,000 artifacts spanning thousands of years. Visitors of all ages will experience Greek history and culture through the words of storytellers past and present. Its interactive exhibitions, Library, Oral History Center, and Education Center showcase the contributions of Hellenism, Greece, and Greek Americans to the world.
