We spent about 1 hour here. It was very interesting. Numerous artefacts going back 2-3 millennia but at 8 Euros a head it was a little in the expensive side.

This is an extensive exhibition that covers the ground and lower floor, plus an outdoor exhibition area. The permanent exhibition ranges from the prehistoric period to the 4th century AD and included some unusual things for Greece like a carving of the Celtic goddess Epona, popular around Europe in the 4th century AD. A temporary exhibition at the museum through... More

Even if I thought that it needed more care in what concerns adequate exhibition of the pieces, you have to see some which are absolutely unique.

As a history buff, I found this to be one of the most exciting places I visited during my trip to Greece. All the well preserved artifacts displayed with dignity was a dream for me to pour through and they added valuable context to my visitations of the Archaeological Museums in Veria and Kavala. Would definitely visit again!

It's the best place to learn about the history of the place you live or you visit. Items, maps, documentation helps you to realize soon where you are. The whole area is divided to different rooms and floors. For more detailed friends a guided tour by experts is always a wise choice.

Very roughly, the collection is partly sculpture, partly gold and silver works. The sculpture is for public displays (heroic statues, pagan religious motifs) or private (e.g. funerary) monuments. The gold, especially is an outstanding collection of jewelry and other adornments; the silver is largely ceremonial vessels for the table. There are also bronzes and ceramics. All demonstrate amazingly detailed artistry.... More

Macedonia is a region with an incredibly rich history and the archeological museum is a great place, even for persons who do not have a great interest in history. Highlight, without a doubt, is the ' gold of Macedonia' exhibition which shows some of the amazing finds from the many graves that have been unearthed.

This museum hide the story of all areas. If you don't speak Greek or English good enough you totally need a Tour Guide with you ( I believe the museum provides some of you are a big group). Visit all the areas of the museums even if you have the time or not. Inside the museum you will see stories... More

I am not a fan of museums in general but the exhibition in this museum was mind-blowing. It was one of the best history lessons in my life. It is amazing that so many monuments, figures and antiques are in such a good shape. It is really worth of seeing!
