Thassos has various archeological sites. Some of them are publicly accessible, others are closed to the public. However the most important findings have been transported to the museum in order to be safeguarded and admired by the tourists for a low price. If you are into more than bars and restaurants while on vacation, pay the museum a visit. It has some interesting ancient sculptures.

I was surprised by the size of this museum. Definitely worth a visit especially if you want to take a look at the ruins around the city. This museum gives you a much needed context for them and gives you the idea of what life was like in ancient times.
The entrance fee is 4 euro (unless you're under 25 or over 65, then it's 2) and currently in july/august of 2020 you need to wear a mask inside.

A fabulous museum. The artefacts are just stunning as they are displayed beautufully. It's modern in style and easy to walk around. The staff are very pleasant and they let us go out for lunch and return for another look around. The cost is minimal. Would highly recommend.

Now my wife & myself do really enjoy museums & history & ancient culture etc, We would rather do this than lie on a beach getting skin cancer! So , we found museum, had a good look around at all the stones & statues out side, It was very good. [about 1/2 hour?]. We went to enter the museum building....... before we were near the entrance or reception we were greeted by.. ..my best description would be a Greek version of 'the Governess off the Chase, on a bad day' "Show me your passports & proof that you have no covid" ! well we had to walk away, but we would not have been in the country if we had not been tested several times! any way we still enjoyed Thassos. kind regards Al & Angie

A very nice museum. The same style as others. I can compare with archaeological museums of Pythagoreion or Vathy where is even bigger Kouros. The biggest one is in an island Naxos. Anyway if do you like history then is this museum the first choice.

A truly outstanding museum, fresh and modern, with signage in three languages (Greek, French, and English) that explains the history of this lovely island. A world-class selection of exhibits, sympathetically displayed, with many sculptural pieces you can walk around to appreciate the skill of their creators.

The rooms are laid out by time period, starting with the Neolithic and ending at the Byzantine/Ottoman, with smaller themed units within the Classical period to show the various religious sanctuaries in ancient Thasos, e.g. Poseidon sanctuary, the theatre, wine production, etc. As a Classical archaeologist, I was very impressed - this is easily the best museum I've seen outside Athens. Thasos has a rich history and this museum showcases it perfectly.

My only criticism is that at this time of year, there's no museum shop. I'd have loved to have bought a guide book or postcards of the most striking artefacts. Closed Mondays, entrance fee 2 euro; good clean toilet facilities.

It definitely caught my interest and put me into that ancient atmosphere so I was almost there! From one side, it's a quite common museum where you can find out more about life and culture. But on the other side, it hides ancient mysteries which unfortunately I didn't find in museum of Thessaloniki.
I recommend this place for people who enjoy history and ancient times instead of just lying on the beach all day.

Thassos and specialy Limenas have a lot of historic sites, some of them are not worth event to mention but museum is excelent. Everything outside of the museum is totaly neglected and for us was very suprising that museum is well organized, clear, with lot of exponats (not like one in Thessaloniki or Athens). place where anyone can see history of Thassos if want. Pictures are allowed without flash

excelent choice for one afternoon brake and to learn kids that vacation is not only see and beach :)

The museum only looks small from the outside but don't be decieved. Give yourself plenty of time to get around all the floors.
