This wonderful little museum has a real treasure trove of ancient Greek artifacts. It is on the lower level of the public arcade at Olympic Tower with access just off Fifth Avenue. Generally quiet, it's a great fun to browse the collection and exhibits.

I had never realized there is this wonderful exhibition space in the building. The Dion exhibition that just ended this weekend was fabulous. I have signed up to go to future events there.

Along our walk we didn't realize we were right at the Onassis Foundation. So, we went in to check out Greek Monsters by Beetroot. It was fantastic. The foundation is nicely laid out and the personnel are very friendly. It's not overdone and I like...More

We attended the show titled " transition to christianity". The show contained 190 items of art from the late antiquity third to the seventh century. The descriptive narratives were highly educational.
