This museum is simply perfect. Everything is described in greek and english,so you knew exactly what are you looking at and you can read about the backgroung, where the exponate was found,etc. Not jus exponates that you don't know what they presents without buying some guide. We spend there about 2,5 hours,so make sure you have enough time for this.... More

Opportunity to see great Greek archeological marvels, especially about Macedonia. Great Macedonian artifacts on the display, all display notes are in English and Greek. Great museum shop - we especially liked replicas of gods and goddesses sculpture heads. Great cafe with the beautiful garden for relaxing after the visit.

A museum about the ancient history of Greece. It shows exhibits of all periods of the ancient history. You can see the civilization that was developed in the area especially during the period of the Kingdom of Macedonia of Alexander the Great. A museum worth visit during your stay in Thessaloniki.

Other museums in the city are also worth having a look if you have time. Can get a double entry for a... More

We spent hours in amazement of these excellent antiquities. Beautifully curated and very educational. Even with our backgrounds in history and culture, we learned so much. Highly recommend.
