I'm not an expert on museum layouts/ curators, but the layout, flow and atmosphere of this museum seemed exceptional to me. It's laid out in 13-stages and each tells a clear and compelling visual story. The quality of the exhibits is first class. Suggest to make the visit in conjunctions to the next door The Archaeological Museum (get a combination... More

Housed in a very nice purpose build building it offers the history of Byzantine in separate rooms with full explanations. The selection of artefact is large and very interesting. Great educational visit.

Beautiful, very well organized, informative for a very small entry fee. (Even cheaper if you buy a combined ticket to the Archaeological Museum that's also not to be missed.) I learned a lot about Byzantine Culture. It's a remarkable experience to see how people lived thousands of years ago. Artworks are simply amazing.

Nice museum with a few lovely icons and other exhibits. Perhaps a little specialised but definately worth an hour of your time and it is next door to thhe larger archaeological museum so a joint ticket is available.

I love a well-designed and well-presented museum, and this is one of them. The lighting and layout is good, and it really makes it a treat to see the exhibits. It's not the largest of museums, and I don't think that there are many pieces in the collection that are particularly famous, but it does a good job of orienting... More

Displays were well set out in a very "visitor friendly" building. The explanatory notes as one passed through the rooms were concise and informative. We particularly enjoyed the displays of capitals and vaulted tombs.

A great deal to look at and some of the exhibits are seriously valuable. If you appreciate Greek /Persian art this is the place for you.

This museum will overwhelm you with the fantastic history and a marvelous display of precious findings from the Thessaloniki. One of the places you have to visit at least once in your lifetime. It stands record of the magnificence of ancient Greece.
