Small but very interest

It is a relatively small museum but very closed to the center. Very easy to access and with a lot of interest exhibitions.

Nice, well designed small museum with impessive exhibits from ancient Macedonia and the tombs of various Macedonians around the region. This should also be combined with the museum and tombs at Vergina for a more complete experience. These two museums show that Macedonia has been Greek for thousands of years...

If you love ancient greek history, this is the place to visit! The admissions ticket is six euros and you are going to see a lot of ancient statues, figures and coins!

The history behind this church. Spectacular Byzantine mosaics that have been restored and depict Agios Dimitrios.

The Archaeological Museum doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside contains countless examples of ancient stonework, artwork, pottery, jewelry, sculpture, funeral relics, and so on. The history of this part of Greece is almost hard to fathom, and the museum does a wonderful job at capturing that wonder!

The Museum is modern and well laid out with good facilities. The Collections are beautiful: sculptures, explanations, historic information are all well done. The gold collection is breathtaking: glorious pieces from all over Greece; from elaborate headdresses, to tiny rings, bracelets, coins, and many things in between. It is comprehensive enough to give a real insight into the history of... More

The museum was very well organized, featured English information, and contained a wide variety of stunning artifacts. I thoroughly enjoyed taking my time and really absorbing the overwhelming amount of information here. I especially enjoyed the "Gold of Macedon" exhibit. If you are in Thessaloniki, and have extra time or it's a rainy day, stop by. I can't comment on... More

This museum has almost too much history in it, it can overwhelm you at first. two visits are ideal to try to see everything.
