Το Μουσείο Μπενάκη συγκαταλέγεται στις μεγάλες εκείνες δωρεές που αύξησαν τα περιουσιακά στοιχεία του κράτους, ενώ ταυτόχρονα αποτελεί και τον παλαιότερο μουσειακό οργανισμό που λειτουργεί στην Ελλάδα ως Ίδρυμα Ιδιωτικού Δικαίου. Με τις εκτεταμένες ενότητες των εκθεμάτων του, που καλύπτουν περισσότερους από έναν πολιτισμικούς τομείς, αλλά και τη γενικότερη λειτουργία του, που εξυπηρετεί περισσότερες από μία κοινωνικές ανάγκες, το Μουσείο Μπενάκη, προσφέρει ένα μοναδικό ίσως υπόδειγμα σύνθετης δομής μέσα στο ευρύτερο πλέγμα των μουσειακών ιδρυμάτων της Ελλάδας.
