  • Greece has a tremendous history - starting with that in mind you will not be ready for what lies ahead in this museum. It's Big enough and you will need some time to visit it all so maybe pay visit in...  more »
  • A special Museum, even if not in attracting the theme of one has to visit the magnificent building of the yolk. Very well staged and with special aura.

  • Very good place to get informations about the byzantine time in and around Thessaloniki. No glasses in front of the most exhibitions. I don't have to say, that you aren't allowed to touch anything! But be careful of you take a closer look. There are light barriers you don't see... My shame that I get trapped not even once :)
  • one of the best museums i've been to in terms of architecture and exhibition. You will want to stay
  • Architecturally nice museum building. Nice presentations. Artifacts could be more stunning though
  • Beautiful museum packed with artifacts and ancient relics giving an excellent chronological panorama of the city's history. Interestingly, we were the only ones there. The only slight con I suppose would be the amount of walking you have to do in here, since some of the different areas are very far apart within the museum building.
  • Good selection, nicely displayed. Extensive information in Greek and English. Staff is slow, not too efficient and their English is poor but they defintely are friendly and helpful
