Destination of the Week: Chicago-Downtown (West Loop), IL-National Hellenic Museum

Destination of the Week: Chicago-Downtown (West Loop), IL-National Hellenic Museum

In a city with so many ethnic and cultural museums, the National Hellenic Museum is in a league by itself.  With a well designed (but not perfect) modern museum, plenty of traveling exhibit space, a rooftop deck, and a gift shop you will actually want to visit, the museum acts as the perfect bookend to the Greektown area.  The first two floors are mostly dedicated to traveling exhibits while the hidden third floor (really hidden) includes a small, but growing, section on Greek culture and Greek immigration to the US.
