Although I am familiar with archaeological sites and museums from Turkey, this museum has a lot of interesting pieces. It has divided to seven parts and you may find a lot of information. Easy to transport ( located near shore), attractive for everyone. The admission fee is 3 Euro for students and it's totally worth it. You could spend the... More

A very good museum, but they have combined ancient artifacts with modern art, and we do not think it is a good combination. The modern pieces really detract from the ancient artifacts.

Visited the Archaeological Museum in November 2015 - had a really good experience and is worth the entrance fee. The museum has broad exhibits focusing on local history examining artwork, statues, pottery, etc. Plan to spend between 1-2 hours here, possibly more if you feel so inclined. Its a few levels high and there is a huge amount of content... More

If it rains in Thessaloniki and you're into history, then you should visit this nice museum. It's only 4€, with the double you can also visit the museum of Byzantine culture nearby and this way you can find out more about the history of this town. Book about one hour to visit it all, it's not very big. It also... More

We visited the museum with the children. It is quite interesting and children friendly. However it would be advisable to have more activities for the children. Moreover it is difficult to go to the toilet with a baby.
