    The archaeological site is unfortunately very neglected. They lack explanations, missing guides, even the store was closed. There was only one young lady at ticket inspection. However the mosaics are very interesting and in my opinion, those who love history and archeology, can not fail to see it.

    This museum is modern and filled with beautiful pieces. The explanations are only in Greek and English. I recommend you start with the Museum and the film, then go to the graves and completed by the archaeological site.

    Pella, Macedonia northern Greece. Birthplace and home of Alexander the Great. Just being there was awesome. Everything else is a bonus.

    A nice museum, rich collection. Go check it out. Your tour takes around 1h if you are paranoid and read every item description.

    One of the most underrated archeological museums in the world. Sometimes there seem to be almost no visiters in the museum. But it's amazing. The treasures and artefacts from Makedonian times are overwhelming. Must see!

    The museum in Pella is very nice. It contains wonderful exposure from when Pella was the ancient capital of the Macedonian state. It is worth a visit.
