The museum is magnificent. You can actually walk around the tombs of those glorious Macedonian kings and queens - the underground walk is actually quite spiritual. The new museum is under way - but even now, all the magnificent artifacts are breath-taking.

A must. I am not exactly an amateur of Museums. But this one I visited already 4 times. You pay 8€ entrance fee. The entrance and exit consist of a short tunnel. There are no waitings queues - even if the place in front of the entrance is crowded.

This museum is breathtaking! You can approach two of the tombs really close and see from above two others. You can see all the items found inside the greatest and wealthiest tomb including the golden larnax and crown of Phillip the II. You must visit this museum. The price is 8 euro the normal ticket and 4 euro the deducted.... More

Made a brief detour during a business trip to visit the museum. Didn't have the time to visit the entire area and the grounds. The museum is a jewel. It is easy to navigate. It has exceptionally beautiful displays of the items found in the tombs. The lighting was a bit low. Not sure if this was due to an... More

I don't think this archeological museum has a single rival in the world. I have certainly never experienced anything like it. To walk into Phillip's world, to walk among his things, to see the royal armour, the most beautiful gold artifacts of that time, to be right there outside the magnificent doors of his tomb, walking through the walls hewn...

Our group of doctor friends went here as a side trip from Thessaloniki. WOW!! I never knew King Phillip II had such an amazing burial site. This was a major site and very few people were there touring the site. It is hard to find and out of the way, but this could be a wonder of the world if... More

It is quite rate that you can have a museum in the site itself. Not only we can go under the tumulus where the tombs have been buried and see the tombs, but there is also at the same place some great parts exposed. The museum is large enough to be a destination and small enough for kids to still... More

This archaeological site is very impressive. It features tombs of the royal Macedonian dynasty and the goods found in the tombs. The good thing is that treasures found in the tombs are displayed on the site. Some people did not like that taking pictures is not allowed, but I think it is actually good. The lack of fired flashes, and... More
