I visited all the main historical sites in Greece last summer – Athens and the Acropolis and Temple of Poseidon, Delphi, Corinth, Mycenae, Olympia, Thermopylae, but none, none compared to the Museum of the Royal Tombs of Aigai. None of them, all together. Instead of a collection of stones, requiring you to see these sites more in your mind than... More

In this museum can be seen 4 tombs of Macedonian kings, the most famous of them is Tomb of Philip II, father of Alexander the Great, and one small temple, a Heroon. Tombs... More

One of the most amazing heritage sites I've ever visited! A great museum, with amazing exhibits showing the history of this unique place in Macedonia, Greece. They also have a new website www.aigai.gr which is currently only in greek but will come up in english too

The city and description behind the history of this monument does it no justice. The discovery rivals that of King Tut. The tombs themselves have the museum built around them which is unique and gives it a sense of pomp. Shame that this museum does not get more visits. It is definitely worth the trip and its artifacts are beautiful.... More
