Since 1983, the National Hellenic Museum has told the stories of Greek contributions to culture with a special focus on the experiences of Greek-American immigrants. A new permanent home opened in 2011. The museum anchors Greektown with a modern and sustainable building that, through its design and materials, references classical Greek architecture and Byzantine monasteries. A dramatic open stairway links the museum's rotating galleries and guides visitors to a permanent exhibit on the Greek immigrant experience. The building has a great rooftop event space. It offers an unconventional perspective on the skyline and the Jane Byrne Circle Interchange.
