Wonderful collection. You can buy a combined ticket for the Byzantine museum for 8 euros. We unfortunately couldn't visit the Byzantine museum even though we paid. they are right next to each other.

Very nice place. Great Macedonian exhibits. Not very big, but well organized - somebody can learn things in it.

A nice museum to see. It was empty the day we were there but nice nonetheless. We made it through in about an hour and twenty minutes. The Gold in Macedonia section was wonderful and explained a lot of regional information. Restaurant downstairs was reasonably priced.

This is an excellent museum offering a variety of exhibits including excellent video presentations. The only grumble was that the staff seemed to regard me as inconvenience and one curator followed me through much of the museum making very loud footsteps and glares,

The museum has a nice collection of antiquities, both inside and out. Items are displayed with excellent lighting and there are English and Greek language labels for the displays. It is definitely a must see for Thessaloniki.

Lots of well lit information boards in big enough writing that I didn't need to be right on top of them to read them.Learnt a lot about Thessaloniki while in there. First Sunday in the month...

Greece is a gorgeous country. It boasts a fantastic history. And the Greeks are probably one of the most friendly people in the world. But when it comes to civil servants, expect the worst so that you are not disappointed. When the museum says it closes at 16.00, it means that they shut the doors around 15.30-15.40 and that they...
