Unlike the White Tower all descriptions were in both Greek & English. The building itself was beautifully designed & well worth the hours spent looking at all the exhibits.

This is a very good museum. We visited with our daughter who is an archaeologist and she was impressed as well. There is a good collection of quality pieces. They were well presented with good English explanations. We found it easy to navigate through on our own.

Today the museum has a terrific and very interesting exhibit of Prehistoric Macedonia, Macedonia from 7th c. BC till late antiquity; Thessaloniki, metropolis of Macedonia, and last but not least The gold of Macedonia, which was just amazing. You need a good 3 hours, but it's worth it.

We were not offered audio or personal tours, had to do it mostly on our own. Interesting, but would have been nice to have a more personal tour or audio descriptions.

You can find real information about historical Greek Macedonia. The golden burial box of Philip father of Alexander is the main attraction besides the amazing findings of Macedonian Land.

This museum is easy to find as is , anywhere else in Thessaloniki too...everything is within easy walking distance! Allow about 2 hours for a visit here! You walk through the history of Thessaloniki alongside artefacts and detailed explanatory notes which accompany each exhibit. How great is it to view so many ancient artefacts from a 'Time Gone By' and... More

Excellent, fascinating museum. Much of the findings at Vergina have now been returned to the Royal Tumulus but this is still an important museum, well laid out and explained, full of exciting artifacts and information.

The archaeological museum is definitely worth visiting, especially prior to any trip to Vergina or Pella. It's full of interesting and well presented exhibits and coherently curated. In addition, the cafe is shady and cool, with loos, free wifi and friendly service. You can get a dual ticket discounted for this museum and the Byzantine museum just next door.

Fantastic explanations putting the artifacts in context. Very interesting experience. Especially liked the historical progression of family and economic contexts.
