The Benaki Museum of Greek Culture shop was the first to ever operate in Greece. Situated in the neoclassical style building of the museum, it was initially established to present faithful replicas of the museum's artifacts. Unique pieces were exclusively chosen throughout the numerous Benaki Museum exhibits and reproduced devotedly. Now, the shop showcases a collection of the finest museum reproductions, as well as contemporary items inspired by the institution’s permanent exhibitions. The selection is of high quality and includes ceramics inspired by the Ancient Greeks, silver jewellery and a replica of a marble head of Aphrodite.
