This is truly a great museum showcasing ancient Greek artifacts in well present and documented exhibits, in both English and Greek. There are also interesting videos showing the history of Macedonia, the northern region of Greece.

If you like ancient history, you must go there! It's well organized, interactive too. There are more than one exposition and you'd like to have more time to visit all of them.One, for example, was about the history of the DNA.

The contents of this musem are a testament to the sheer volume and variety of hisorical artefacts that have been unearthed in the local area, as well as the level of civilization reached here.

Great exhibit of the archaeology of the area. Magnificent exhibit of Macedonian tomb finds. But make sure you go to Vergina to see the tomb of Philip II.
