They let you photograph anything (without flash), and I'm so pleased... More

World class museum. Informative, spacious and high quality exhibits. You can get a ticket for a bit extra that also lets you into the excellent Museum of Byzantine Culture which is close by.

Well fit out, well explained with exhaustive informations. Superb masterworks as the gold of the Macedonians that alone are worth the visit. The historical reconstruction is clear and rich in details. I have not found negative elements in this beautiful museum.

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

Great museum shop - we especially liked replicas of gods and goddesses sculpture heads. Great cafe with the beautiful garden for relaxing after the visit.
