We spent hours in amazement of these excellent antiquities. Beautifully curated and very educational. Even with our backgrounds in history and culture, we learned so much. Highly recommend.

The quality of the exhibits and information is outstanding. It provides clear and concise insight into the incredible depth of history and culture in this part of the world. Together, with a visit to the adjascent Museum of Byzantine Culture it makes for a very interesting day (or 1/2 day to do both is also enough)

I'm ever impressed and in deep awe of the ingenuity, craftsmanship, elegance and painstacking detail that characterise these unforgettable ancient artifacts on display. It's a testament to a brilliant, humane civilization prior to the subsequent Roman/Christian fall from grace.

I was extremely impressed with this museum! Beautiful and interesting material that was clearly described in both English and Greek. I was particularly impressed with the innovative education modules that involved touch-pad computers and projectors. This should be a must see for anyone visiting Thessaloniki.

The museum is well laid out and interesting. If you visit nothing else but the gallery with the gold jewelry in it then the visit is worthwhile. To see the detail and workmanship from such ancient pieces is incredible. Some lovely pieces on display.

Archaeological Museums are fantastic in Greece. This one is no exception. Amazing artifacts, all originals (except very few that's clearly marked), in very good to excellent condition. Well organized, easy to follow. Plan to spend at least 1/2 day.

Really nice museum. Well layed out and full of interesting things. A bit like a school project at times with the information displays, etc, but better to have too much information than not enought. Light, airy, comfortable. Friendly helpful staff.
