A very nice museum to visit if you are in the area. Thought the ticket was a bit expensive but in the end it worths it. You must visit !

I haven't seen anything similar around the world, royal tombs in their natural location and a museum positioned in harmony and respect to the history of this location, that all giving you... More

This is definitely a must. All the exhibits have a story of their own to tell, most of them are breath taking.

Well worth a visit. Young children could get frightened by the video, good air conditioning, good tombs and excellent remains found within it. I loved the cafe and the grounds are very pleasant. The shop was a bit disappointing.

The tombs are breathtaking. I've seen a lot of museums but this one is outstanding. There is a cafe where you can relax and it is easy walking distance to several restaurants too. We visited on a weekend and there were no crowds or queues.Don't miss it!

This is a must see if you are anywhere near. The tombs and museum are well presented, with good explanations. The workmanship of the finds are the amounts of pure gold are impressive. The story of Phillip and Alexander is also interesting- who was behind the death of Phillip?

This is a "must-see" if you're traveling in Northern Greece! Among the four main tombs are the actual tombs of Alexander The Great's father and son, all preserved and on display, in situ, exactly as they were discovered in 1977 and subsequently unearthed. Unlike most other tombs discovered in Greece, this site had not been previously disturbed or looted. Visitors... More

When I visited this excellent museum I thought that while the rest of Europeans were dangling from the trees....the Greeks were creating masterpieces and greatness. The treasures of the museum are presented in a very modest way that leaves the lavish exhibits to speak for themselves. The museum is not very big a fact that gives you the opportunity to... More

We made a special trip to see this museum. Well worth it. Wonderful exhibits of the extraordinary grave goods they found. A very revealing snapshot of royal court life and intrigues from the 4th and 3rd centuries BC. No photography allowed. The palace ruins area nearby were not yet opened when we visited but should be by August 2016.
