The Archaeological Museum - Review

The Archeological Museum of Thessaloniki is a treasure trove or artefacts and an ode to the Macedonian Legacy of the area. You will be able to see an astonishing number of incredibly beautiful pieces of art and art objects as well as other articles from the ancient times.

The beautiful pottery, the stunning mosaics and the lovely paintings of the era have been displayed in the museum. You will also find a number of sculptures, and metal work objects that are worth a see. The best part about the museum is the collection of miniatures. The whole place is a fascinating collection of treasures from the past and hence a definite must see in Thessaloniki.

The Archaeological Museum, Thessaloniki Reviews

  • Remarkable collection of diverse artifacts referring to first establishments on the land of current Thessaloniki before the city was founded and how it was developed since 315 B.C. Rich detailed information on Hellenistic period, Roman empire presence , Ottoman influence and how these affected the area around and in Thessaloniki. Ladies will enjoy seeing jewellery and perfume containers. On the ground floor there's an exhibition of figurines and some educational programs' videos. Moreover,there are a few displays of tech and archaeological research marriage where one can play games on Greek gods and heroes.

  • We loved our experience here. It was a good option for a rainy day and with plenty of history to see. My son loved seeing the skeletons and looking at the figurines outside.

  • Great museum with many archeological findings. Description is available in English language everywhere. There is an exhibition on the lower level as well (we almost missed it) with pottery and great gold craftwork. Also on the lower level another discovery area uses some high-tech tools and gadgets like kinect. It's fun to try. You can purchase a joint ticket for 5 museums for 15€ here, the regular entrance fee is 8€.

  • I like history so found it very interesting, it's mainly about Mecedonia in BC it's really big and I could easily spend 2hrs.

  • The central rooms hold exhibits from the archaeological excavations conducted in Thessaloniki and the broader area of Macedonia. The new wing hosts two exhibitions: The Gold of Macedon, with artefacts from the cemeteries of Sindos, Agia Paraskevi, Nea Filadelfia, Makrygialos, Derveni, Lete, Serres, and Evropos; and The Thessaloniki Area in Prehistory, with material from prehistoric settlements, dating from the Neolithic to the Early and Late Bronze Age. At present, the collection of Archaic to Late Romansculptures from Thessaloniki and Macedonia in general is displayed in the central section of the museum. They illustrate the history of Thessaloniki from prehistoric times to Late Antiquity. These rooms display architectural members from an Ionic temple of the 6th century BC, sculptures of all periods from Macedonia, exhibits from the excavations in the palace complex built by Galerius in the Thessaloniki city centre, a reconstruction of the façade of the Macedonian tomb in Agia Paraskevi, with genuine architectural members, and finds (mainly gold artefacts) of the Archaic and Classical periods from the Sindos cemetery. In all these rooms, certain important exhibits have been singled out and further information about them is given to help visitors appreciate the importance of each exhibit and of the area and the period from which it comes. Apart from its permanent displays, the Archaeological Museum also hosts major temporary and thematic exhibitions. In the Manolis AndronikosRoom, for instance, there is an exhibition titled The Coins of Macedonia from the 6th Century to 148 BC, with examples of coins that were circulating in Macedonia in that period. A showcase in the lobby of the museum displays some finds from the excavation of the Neolithic settlement at Makrygialos in Pieria, accompanied by information about the progress of the excavation.
