The 11 galleries of the permanent exhibition display the different views of Byzantine and Post-Byzantine culture, through authentic artifacts, audiovisual material and touchscreens. The Museum has several conservation workshops and archaeological store rooms, both fully equipped, as well as, a lecture’s hall, a wing for temporary exhibitions, a multipurpose hall, two amphitheatres, a museum shop and a café-restaurant.

It is housed in a historic building, considered as a “work of art”, constructed between the years 1989-1993 on the awarded designs of architect and painter, Kyriakos Krokos. For the first time in the history of a Greek public museum, the Museum of Byzantine Culture has been awarded the Council of Europe’s Museum Prize for the year 2005, after the unanimous decision by the Committee on Culture, Science and Education of the Council of Europe.
