Pleasantly surprised. No glossing over any part of the city's history. Fantastic facility, great artificates accompanied by well presented notes. All conquerors, periods and incidents are touched on with equal attention. Worth visiting.

Magnificent exhibits, very well displayed. Information provided on the displays and the era of each, also very helpful. I was slightly disappointed by the museum shop. It sold mementos that were from every other Greek museum and very little relating to the specific one.

A modern building, well laid out, with galleries covering all eras of Byzantine culture. Mosaics, sculpture, grave slabs, artwork, artefacts, etc, all well displayed and explained in Greek and English. Fascinating place to pass a couple of hours for those interested in the Byzantine Empire.

This must be one of the most interesting museum architecture I have ever experienced. A brilliant architect! There's nothing really monumental or loud about the structure; it is large but not massive, it is simple without being a 'warehouse" and it is modern without being in contrast with the exhibits. It is actually like the building holds your hand and... More

It's spacious, renovated and well-designed. It contains several halls, dedicated to different periods and themes, such as everyday life, crafts, icons etc. The section of painted Early Christian tombs... More
