  • Incredible Artefacts, Great storytelling - the new museum has really shown how amazing the artefacts of the Macedonian kingdom and later Roman era of Thessaloniki and the region can be.

  • Very clean and delightful experience. Plenty of history to look at. They offer a single day pass or a three day pass to visit other sites outside of the museum. There is air conditioning and plenty of languages available. The direct translations on the walls are green and English though. Staff is very friendly.
  • The entry is free for adults under 25. As a 25+ year old, you can get a 15 euro ticket to visit the Archeological Museum, the Museum of Byzantine Culture and the White Tower. The ticket in question is valid for 3 days! The staff is friendly and the the lockers are free. Very enriching experience. You’ll leave the Museum with a greater understanding Thessalonian culture!
