  • The Museum really liked me and I would visit again at any time. We were lucky and there was almost nothing going on and therefore very quiet. The staff had converse with each other, it has interested nobody for us, however, were all friendly. Some descriptions ("open here") - missed where perceived before. All descriptions of the exhibits were in Greek and English. Beautiful and interesting exhibits. A detailed explanation was on almost every piece. The jewelry was shown separately and about the exhibited pieces (rings, earrings, egg...) could be found in the separate catalogue. In short, interesting, diverse, informative and worth seeing. The price of admission (until end of March 4,-€) it's worth in any case. Unfortunately, the shop had closed

  • Very interesting museum. You can find the jewelry and other household items used by ancient Macedonian
  • Spent several hours viewing Greek history, statues, mosaics, artifacts, gold and jewelry, historical maps... Time perfectly spent on a rainy day :-) liked the additional expositions too - sarcophagi, burial figurines, interactive maps and historical jewelry - all very interesting. Good information in English.
  • I was pleasantly surprised by how much stuff was in here. It looked a lot smaller from the outside.
  • Wether you're a tourist visiting Thessaloniki or a local you must definitely visit this amazing museum! Because of it's size, it takes time to walk through all the displays, but it totally worths it!
  • That was the best museum I've ever visited. They told everything about artifacts in English. Also my grandma's stuff seems older than artifacts in this place.
