The museum covered the entire history of Greece with displays from the Bronze Age up to WWII. Ancient Athenian tomb steles, Byzantine jewelry, icons, an Ottoman-era living room, items from the War of Independence and some well-known ancient art pieces were also here. Beautiful religious art and also lots of textiles and period costumes were included as well– it sounded like it would be ideal for us. The building was roughly chronologically organized.
The following were some of my favorite pieces from the 100,000 plus item collection. This first one was from the Middle Geometric I Period, circa 8,000 BC. I certainly had never known there had been such a period!
