The National Hellenic Museum has reopened in a new 3-story building in December 2011. Currently, the first floor houses the Monsters, Myths and Mortals exhibit which features plenty of interactives to teach kids about Greek history while they have a little fun. Climb in the giant Trojan horse or arm wrestle a Greek athlete. The permanent exhibits are expected to be completed in the summer 2012.
