About 6 halls showcasing the city treasures since early Byzantine era up to 1920 or posted byzantine era.

You will get a lot of the byzantine history of town which will then give you a different perspective of the ruins you see walking around in town (walls etc).

Have been several times. For visitors to the city it is easy to get to and can be combined with a visit to the Archaeological museum next door. The exhibits are well displayed.

The museum is worth a visit. I bought a combination ticket with the Archeological Museum. I visited the Archeolgical Museum first, which has a very interesting collection. I found the Byzantine Culture Museum good, but the focus was too narrow.

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.
