Venue Testimonials

We attended an event on the grounds next to the Hellenic Museum last weekend, and we were lucky enough that it was open to all attendees. We went in to have a look and were amazed at the exhibits. There was a mixture of ancient and modern exhibits, artifacts and art.

Anthony S

Wonderful exhibits and very friendly staff. Great event space and a fantastic museum to boot.

Haohan L

Such a beautiful venue for a wedding! The exterior is very well maintained. The wedding that I shot there had a little over 100 guests, and they all fit under cover very happily.
