Must-see National Hellenic Museum (Chicago)

The must-see National Hellenic Museum ("The Newest Thing in Ancient History") -- where I am sitting right now -- is located at 333 S. Halsted St in Chicago's Greektown. The wonderful 4-story building (with it's amazing views from the terrace) has been open about a year-and-a-half. The library is pretty neat and welcomes materials from Greek-American communities around the country. And there is an oral history section. I'm impressed!

Current fabulous exhibits include "American Moments: The Legacy of Greek Immigration" (every Greek-American will relate!) and "The Holocaust in Greece." There's more to see; check the website for more info and to join. Spread the word, while I visit the gift shop :)
