Amazing displays of ancient artifacts! A must see! Unbelievable. Actual tombs of Phillip II, and possibly that of the son of Alexander the Great. Unfortunately no photo taking allowed. Entry fee of 8 euros is well spent. There is also WC in the compound, and shops and small eateries in the small town of Vergina.

One of the most magnificent museum's on earth. The visitor enters the impressive interior of an ancient Greek royal tomb and see numerous artifacts and an armor held by Alexander the great himself.

One of the best, if not the best museum to visit! All the artefacts and the tombs are impressive and the history behind them is explained in great detail! We really enjoyed the visit and will visit again in 2016 when the Palace and the bigger museum is open.

We have always been amazed by ancient ruins and shrines. This one is really great and very cleverly organized: the museum is actually built over the discovered tombs. Dim light, low background music and smell of wet soil add to the ambience.

I was thrilled with this museum! It is build right on the Tombs of Macedonian kings, protecting them from sun and heat and rain. The tombs are very well preserved and are very impressive and so are the findings of the excavations. Golden tiaras, golden jewellery, armors, amazing! I loved everything about it!

The location is away from the typical tourist route. This is well worth the time. It is the burial cluster of Phillip II, the father of Alexander the Great. It is a remarkable collection and is presented very well. You will be amazed once you enter. Nothing outside is remarkable, but this was one of the highlights of our trip.... More

The royal tombs at Vergina with the tomb of Alexander the Great's father Phillip II are magnificent both for the artifacts and the feigned reality in the darkened museum. If anything it is a little too dark for my liking. But to my delight this is only the beginning. Most tourists see only the tombs and ignore the huge undeveloped... More

Outstanding example of modern archeology and museum sciences. Out of the way but an absolute wonderful site and worth the visit.

Apart from the splendour of the finds, the tombs themselves are beautifully lit and described. We were lucky, I suspect, in that we went just before closing time and there was hardly any-one else there. A tour group might have spoilt the atmosphere a bit. It's our second visit but Philip's tomb, and especially the earlier remains, are amazingly evocative.... More
