The National Hellenic Museum will be closed to the public from 10:00 AM to 1:30 PM on Friday, June 16 due to a private event.

The Gus and Mary Stathis Library & Resource Center is available to researchers during Museum hours.

The NHM Library is currently and only available for use onsite.


Genres in our library collection include classic Greek literature, history of ancient Greece, Greek American biographies and memoirs, modern Greek history, and, of course, cookbooks.

Due to space and preservation concerns, many of our volumes are not available unless requested through a staff member. If you are looking for something specific, please use contact us for assistance and planning prior to your visit.
