The Musesum of the Macedonian Struggle is a historical museum that presents the local history and cultural identity of Macedonia, keeping alive the memory of the struggles of Hellenism and highlighting the role of ordinary people who left indelible traces in a diverse cultural heritage. With the tours one discovers a lesser known but ideologically charged chapter of the Greek and Balkan history of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Museum is open to the public Monday-Friday 9:00-14:00 and Saturday 10:00-14:00.

This is a lovely small museum. It has lots of information about the Macedonian independence fighters though out the ages. Very informative and easily accessible. However it's a bit too detailed about the individuals of the region for tourists to understand.

The museum closes early, however they were nice enough to let us in, even though they were about to close. Nice building and well-told story of the Macedonian identity. Learned something new, and that is what you visit museums for I guess!

Arrived there at 3.30 on our last day in Thessaloniki and unfortunately it closes at 3 so we only saw the outside of it. If we ever go to Thessaloniki again, we'll go there in the morning. The building looks very nice.
