http://www.aigai.gr/en/visit/organize If you are in the area of Thessaloniki w any spare time - this is a great half day visit and have a picnic there. Lots of decent cafes for coffee, snack meal. Good clean facilities. I've been to very many archealogical sites around the world and I rate this one exceptionally high. The structure remains intact, everything is... More

We drove an hour out of the way to visit this museum. The concept of leaving the tombs intact within the burial mound is astounding, and the display of artifacts found in and around them makes this one of the most unique museums in the world. The subdued lighting and hush lends an air of gravity and respect for the... More

Despite being hidden aside from the greatest attractions of the area, this is one of the most impressive museums, we have ever visited.

I would start by saying that my title says it all! As a big admirer of ancient Greek history, and especially of Alexander the Great, this museum, for me was a must do! But I can safely say that after visiting it twice, I can admit that this is a must do for everyone (at least visitors of northern Greece).... More

Excellent. Something you should not miss if you are at the area. The excavation of the tombs is something remarkable.

Sublime atmosphere in a great museum. Worth the visit and the trip. Makes you wonder how time passes, how many things are lost and the grand civilization of Ancient Greece. Make sure to have time to enjoy a coffee at the base of the tumulus

If you like ancient history you won't regret visiting this place. It is nothing less than spectacular. The museum has been set up beautifully and the dimmed lights make it even more intriguing. Not many people visiting Greece make it up to Vergina so the museum is not very busy, but if you plan to visit that area or for... More

Don't miss this hidden gem if you are travelling in Northern Greece. The entrance fee is a bit pricey (8 euro) but it's worth the price and under the age of 18 the entrance is free. It is very interesting even for those who are not into history. It is a pity that the nearby archeological site has been closed... More

My husband is the one who chose the places we are to visit on hoidays. I followed him and was more or less impressed with the different sites. But the Museum of the Royal Tombs of Aigai completely awed me like I have never been. In the dark and cool interior illuminated by the beautifully displayed statues, tombstones, arms, jewels,...
