The new-look National Hellenic Museum is due to open in Chicago this autumn

Located at 333 South Halsted Street, the 40,000-square-foot museum will spotlight ancient Greek history alongside cultural contributions made by Greeks today, with artefacts ranging from pottery crafted before Christ to clothing worn by the first Greeks to arrive in Chicago.
The first floor will have glass walls, and two floors of exhibition and education space will be topped by a rooftop terrace with three gardens, offering views of the city skyline.
The new museum will replace the Hellenic Museum and Cultural Center, which opened in 1983, hugely expanding its scope.
As well as space for temporary arts and artefact exhibitions, the new facility will include a hall for special events and shows and a library.
Special group rates will be available for groups of 10 or more.
