This is a must-see for visits to Thessalonika. The wide range of exhibits are very well displayed and range widely from beautifully preserved mosaics and paintings to restored decorated tombs, architecture, and a wide range of artefacts. The museum is centrally located and very easily accessible. Well worth the entrance fee.

The museum has some beautiful and interesting exhibits spread over a number of floors including wonderful mosaics and religious icons. my only complain would be that the rooms are too spread out with endless walking up ramps.

We sent an hour here this July, which in retrospect was too short. The museum is very well curated and has many interesting and unusual exhibits. The layout and presentation is fairly conventional, and the museum is compact enough to not overwhelm you. Good for a couple of hours, and a must visit if you are in Thessaloniki.

If you have time, not miss it. There are several rooms and one has precious objects from a private collection such as icons and old printed materials about the monasteries of Mount Athos.

The evolution of the Byzantine art and culture from the 4th to the 19th century is very well explained.
