Since January 2012 the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, above and beyond its ongoing donations throughout the world, has developed initiatives against the economic crisis as its contribution to deal with the consequences of that crisis in Greece. Ensuring access, in other words providing the public at large with the capacity to participate equally and actively in the experiences Art provides, is a priority throughout all the fields in which the Foundation is active. The idea of reinforcing access is what motivated the Foundation to support the Benaki Museum.
Specifically, the Foundation is providing support to the Benaki Museum in order to bolster its operations, and also to provide one year of free entrance, once a week, for all four Museum buildings: The Central Building (1 Koumbari St.), the Piraios Street Annexe, the Museum of Islamic Art and the Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika Gallery.
Free entrance will be in effect every Thursday from July 15th, 2013 and will have last for one year.
