  • A must visit place for tourists buy for locals too. History from centuries ago, you'll leave the place amazed. Good price tickets too.
  • Very interesting museum with a lot to see and to admire. There is very rich exhibition of gold jewellery and gold myrtle shaped wreath. There is also open sky exhibition of stone and marble pieces of ancient architecture. Some parts of exhibition are interactive. Be advised that museum looks from outside as much smaller then it's in reality, so plan a few hours to saw everything.
  • Very well laid out with many fascinating exhibits. All explained in Greek and English only. A few short expository videos to watch,also in English. Well worth visiting.
  • Spacious,attractive grounds! Well laid out and easy to navigate artefacts.
  • Very interesting exhibits that were displayed in a way that made me interested in Thessaloniki and its history in a way i didnt expect. Compared to the Archeological Museum of Athens, this museum does far more with less. Impressive.

Where to stay in Thessaloniki

If you come to Thessaloniki to splurge and pamper yourself, book a room at one of the city's five-star hotels, providing spacious rooms packed with amenities, as well as access to rooftop bars, ground-floor restaurants, and fitness facilities. Centrally located hotels also provide secure parking, complimentary Wi-Fi, and quick walking access to the city's top attractions. On the other hand, if all you need is a comfortable bed and a warm meal, consider a budget-friendly hostel or family-run inn in the residential areas outside the city's central area.
