This lovely small museum is back open normal hours following COVID-19 with social distancing and masks. So smaller crowds and easier to see the exhibits! We came to Pella in conjunction with Vergina and really enjoyed the view of every day life in Pella. The pebble mosaics were stunning as was the section with the burial artefacts of various soldiers and important people - the more gold the wealthier! We also visited the outdoor museum but it was very hot and the mosaics were dirty and dusty.

A very good museum, with excellent collections from the excavations at Pella, including 1:1 pictures of mosaics that were left in situ at the site. Clear and useful explanations on the exhibits. Worth a visit.

Museum is well curated. The maximum information is pleasantly conveyed. The sense of the society is evoked. This visit rekindled my interest in Greek history having had it largely annihilated at school. Visit the site after museum and the history will sing in your ears.

Stop into this place first in Pella to understand how things were in the past. Good displays to allow you to see artifacts.
