Well laid out, priceless artifacts, the Stella's are better than the met's, fabulous gold diadems, much less crowded than Athens, easy to read descriptions and videos in English, the history of Macedonia is covered from 10th century bc forward. Very well done and can completed in 3 hours. You can get dual ticket to Byzantine museum which we did. Museum... More

Within the city center, easy to access, in a well-designed building, open and spacious . The collection is impressive, the famed gold masterpieces of ancient Macedonia which are undoubtedly the spotlight of the exhibition, the Roman period Thessaloniki hall and the lapidarium in the courtyard are also definitely worth a visit. There are excellent information labels everywhere. The museum shop... More

Nothing special. A very nice museum (not like European museums) with a few things to see. Most of the audiovisual cannot be heard properly. The coffee place Inside the museum (in the terrace) is amazing.

This is a well laid out museum which is obviously popular with local families. The gold jewellery from graves in the area is absolutely astonishing. It is beautifully displayed and we went around that section of the museum twice. The ticket is combined with the Byzantine museum and is worth every penny

As said before: spacious museum, good build up in both time and theme. Yes of course they could take a more modern approach, but the objects are really great and there is no place in the world where the Old Makedonia story is told to this extend. The combination ticket is really advisable: the Byzantine museum had pretty much the... More

Very vast and rich museum, interesting not only for the archaeologists. Sometimes you have to go through an entire Museum to find one item which captors your heart, and only for it it was worth coming.

We visited the archeological museum as students and had to pay full price tickets (8 euros) as our id was 'not enough ' to prove we were students. The exhibits are great but not highlighted as they should be. I was incredibly annoyed by the people who work as guards, who were awkwardly staring at us the whole time. Nevertheless,... More

I loved this museum. Its open and spacious (at least it was when we visited). The collections are arranged in a logical way and we felt that we learnt more here than many other mueums. Photos are allowed but no flash.

There is no need to underline the importance of this Museums' exhibits which offer a very comprehensive overview of the art and society in ancient Macedonia. The Museum reopened approx. 12 years ago, but its main problem is that the display of all halls is really outdated and outrageously neglected. There has been no change of the burnt lamps in... More

The museum tells us where our culture comes from and looking at the world where we will end. A walk down the waterfront cheers you up
