The Benaki Museum was established in 1929 by art collector Antonis Benakis, son of a Greek politician who grew up in Egypt. The museum is one of the most visited and known museums of Athens. It features Greek art from the prehistoric period to the modern days. In this museum, one can witness the evolution of Greek society through the ages. The Benaki Museum was renovated in 2000. It consists of six buildings (Main Building, Benaki Pireos St. Annexe, Museum of Islamic Art, N. Hadjikyriakos-Ghika Gallery, Yannis Pappas Studio, house of P. Delta) and a library and the biggest photography archive in Greece. Each building holds permanent and temporary exhibitions.
