Nice museum that represents totally the ancient hellenic civilization of the Macedonia. Proof of this is the inscriptions in Greek doric idiom that was the common language of ancient Macedonia.

Very nice museum. Although small, it offers a nice collection of artifacts found in King Philip's tomb. The ruins of his palace are piles of broken columns and pilars unfortunately.

A really well thought out presentation of artefacts. Spacious viewing galleries with exhibits being well displayed and explanations in Greek and English. The display of grave goods from the excavated tombs alone are well worth the admission price. Highly recommended.

The outstanding modern museum is great, then the fine Alexander statue in the main square ( he was born here) and lastly the ancient site which had scant remains. Pella was the capital of Macedonia.
