I discovered the Hellenic Museum last year, in the old Mint Building on William Street, near the Flagstaff Gardens.

It has an amazing collection of figures, art, jewells, and much more from Greece and is swapped regularly. These are all originals, no replicas, and simply stunning.

Not only is the exhibition swoon worthy, the building itself is a treasure.

And this year, the top floor was open with additional exhibits, one with jewells, one with photography by Bill Henson including some of the jewells.

Plus they had decorated the building with many tall Greek statues!

At a cost of $10, this little known gem is well worth a visit next time you are in Melbourne.
