  • Interesting experience; I loved the fact that you actually have a guide that talks to you through the struggle. There are a lot of wax figures representing important people that marked the Macedonian uprising. Not to be confused with the Museum of Macedonia, which is located after the Old Bazar, next to the Mosque.
  • It's empty it's not a museum. Macedonia it's Greek come to Vergina and Pella to see the real Macedonia.
  • Must see museium...get to know the macedonian struggle thre the years.
  • This newly built museum with wax figures presents the history of Macedonian people and their struggle through difficult times.
  • They have private tours for everyone that buys a ticket, and the guy didn't stop talking, explained every single thing. Thumbs up!
