If you want to learn about Ancient Macedonian history go to Pella, Vergina and Thessaloniki in Macedonia in Greece. It is a shame that they change and disconnect historical evidences from Hellinistic times in order to accommodate a political effort to create new non-slavic identities....More

A treasure house of objects from 1000s of years of Macedonian history. The English translations could be a bit better but the objects are fascinating and well displayed

On the whole it's a pretty good museum. It has some good displays, interesting history, and is a good size. However there are some issues. Due to lighting, position relative to you, or a combination of both it can be quite hard or near impossible...More

Like all others museums that we have visited in our eurotrips, this one was also very interesting. Macedonia was a country that belonged to many great empires and in the archeological museum you can have the opportunity to see every influence from those empires. If...More
