The Islamic Art collections of the Benaki Museum are exhibited at the Museum of Islamic Art, in Thiseio, near the ancient cemetery of Kerameikos. Over 8,000 examples of pottery, metalworking, goldsmith, textiles, wood carving and glass works present the continuation of Islamic time from early Muslims to the Ottoman period and the development of Islamic art until the 19th century.
