“Well Presented Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

I love a well-designed and well-presented museum, and this is one of them. The lighting and layout is good, and it really makes it a treat to see the exhibits. It's not the largest of museums, and I don't think that there are many pieces in the collection that are particularly famous, but it does a good job of orienting you to the basics of Byzantine history. Definitely worth a visit, particularly considering the low cost.

“Broadened our knowledge of Byzantine culture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Displays were well set out in a very "visitor friendly" building. The explanatory notes as one passed through the rooms were concise and informative.

We particularly enjoyed the displays of capitals and vaulted tombs.

“THESSALONIKI trip.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

A great deal to look at and some of the exhibits are seriously valuable. If you appreciate Greek /Persian art this is the place for you.

“Must-visit museum!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This museum is really nice! In my holidays in greece i've been in many archaeological museums, and i wanted to see something different... and i think this museum is exactly what i needed!
The ilumination is very (very!) poor in some parts of the museum, even that much that i couldn't see some of the pieces dispayed!

Price of the ticket, 4€, if you buy the ticket for the Byzantine musum + Archaeological museum, 6€
