This is a must while in Thessaloniki. It has magnificent treasures from the first times of the city and the previous settlements. Don't miss the Palace complex treasures and the coin collection (Thessaloniki had its own mint for a long time).

A must visit museum for Thessaloniki. A collection of Macedonian history at the heart of Macedonia. It is at the center of the city with many other sights within walking distance.

The content of the museum is stunning, especially the gold collection. Everything is beautifully displayed and very well explained in Greek and English, within a lovely, modern building.
