The archaeological museum is very impressive. The Greek have had a sense of style for centuries. You see it in the jewelry, the clothes and home décor even in the time B.C. There is a small fee to get into the museum. It is also right next store to the Byzantine Museum so you can do both.

Compared to the Archaeological Museum in Athens, this one is great! While the one in Athens really had little to no writing/descriptions, this one has plenty for the curious onlooker. I heard from some (in my hostel) that they didn't like this museum as much as the Byzantine next door, but honestly, my review is in context to what the... More

It was a nice museum to visit at a warm summerday. The pieces were beautifull and the film about thessaloniki was awesome. Nice stuff which we visit in 2 hours. It would be perfect if we had some more information about the pieces.

Most impressive museum with a large variety of very interesting and well preserved artifacts. Especially the jewellery found in tombs, which were discovered by chance at the military airport near Thessaloníki, is absolutelty stunning. Watch for the incredibly beautiful golden laurels in particular! Master craft in the most pure essence of the word.

A great insight into the history of Greece and especially of Alexander the Great and his father Philip II. As well as all the archaeological artifacts from throughout the ancient history of Greece it also has an interactive pathway starting from prehistoric times and outlines daily life from the point of view of common people.

A nice museum showing pieces of antiquity, giving you the chance to travel to ancient times and offering a hinch of what Greek civilization is about.

In a country flooded with archaeology this museum is good if not superb. There are some nice findings from local ancient cemeteries. For great classical or even pre-classical sculpture you are better off in Athens.

Need at least one hour to see everything! Go in the heat of the day, but keep in mind that they close at 4pm.
