About the museum

From March 24 through June 18, 2016, the Onassis Cultural Center NY will present the exhibition Gods and Mortals at Olympus: Ancient Dion, City of Zeus, exploring the relationship between daily life in a city built on the slopes of Mount Olympus and the mythological abode of the gods at the peak. Within an immersive setting, the exhibition will feature more than ninety artworks and artifacts—including mosaics, sculptures, jewelry, ceramics, coins, glass, and implements—dating from the tenth century BC to the fourth century AD. Gods and Mortals at Olympus will be open to the public free of charge as the inaugural exhibition in the newly renovated galleries of the Onassis Cultural Center NY in midtown Manhattan.

Dr. Dimitrios Pandermalis, President of the Acropolis Museum, Athens, and director of excavations at Dion, has curated the exhibition, which consists entirely of artworks and artifacts never before seen in the United States. On view for the first time anywhere will be a visually arresting group of mosaic panels dating from the Roman era, newly restored with the support of the Onassis Foundation.

    I visited the site on the 5th Av just to learn that the open hours are not correct and the particular exhibition is over. I suggest to update the info.
