Hellenic Museum

Why you'll love Hellenic Museum

  • Features sophisticated event spaces suitable for any events.
  • Within a 5 minute walk from Flagstaff Train Station with access to affordable parking next door to the venue.
  • Australia's only museum showcasing 8,000 years Greek art, history and culture.

Brimming with historic relevance, The Hellenic Museum is currently situated in the former Mint Building positioned centrally within Melbourne’s CBD. Don’t let the otherwise busy and crammed central city location fool you. The idyllically lush private garden situated behind the original building is home to purpose-built event structure by renowned architect, Sean Godsell. The perfect space for both warm or cooler days, this box-like structure is the immaculate entertaining construction for either sit down dinners, cocktail gatherings, or ceremonies alike.

If indoors is not your thing, the gardens can house ceremonies or opulent garden parties to celebrate your special day also. Inside the heritage-listed building is the private room, aptly titled ‘The Henson Room’, with moody interiors glazed in golds and regal navy blues, and of course, filled wall-to-wall with iconic Henson artworks referencing Hellenic iconography. The impressive Grand Foyer can cater for up to 200 people, whilst the museum space (with rotating exhibitions) can also be used for a truly bespoke event.
