What is Athens in Greek mythology?

The city is named after Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom and battle strategy. In Greek Mythology, the city of Athens was created when God decided to have a contest and name the growing city after the deity who offered the most useful gift to the mortals. The first city of Athens was Phoenician, and the king who founded it was Cecrops.

Are there any Greek mythology museums?

The National Archaeological Museum in Athens boasts a number of images, statues, and carvings connected to Greek Mythology. So it could be considered the closest thing to a Greek Mythology museum.
