A vast industrial art space organised around a central courtyard. It is Athens’s window to contemporary art and design with no permanent collections. The Museum shop is so luminous and filled with unique pieces like items to decorate a flat or to enrich a library. The café-restaurant on the ground floor serves a good selection of dishes and is a good place for breakfast. www.benaki.gr
