Visited this beautiful museum on a trip to Thessaloniki, it is really fascinating. In the winter months it closes at 16.00 so an early start is advised but well worth the effort. We didn’t bring the teenagers as they have limited museum capacity.

I enjoy visiting museums. This one has an angle which revealed some previously misunderstood aspects of Greek-Roman interactions from the perspective of Eastern Christianity. The importance of Macedonian region to the history of Europe does not often feature in English-language sources. Western Christianity focussed narrative...More

Great place to visit. We went on a weekday (Wednesday) and it was virtually empty. The history of Thessaloniki laid out in chronological order. My only complaint was that the museum shop didn't have any guides in English.

One realizes the centrality of Thessaloniki to the history of today's Greece and beyond. It makes the city one of Europe's best kept tourism secrets.

Thessaloniki was the second most important city of the byzantine empire. Despite the catastrophe of the 20th century the feeling of the significance of the city is seen everywhere in the city center. The museum provides a trip back in time to visitor.
