It hosts the history of the byzantine period of the city with a vast permanent collection and very interesting events organized all year long. Excellent cafe/restaurant too.

It is located next to the Archaeological Museum. You can visit both at a discounted price. The exhibits are well presented in a chronological order and in spacious rooms, maybe too spacious. Do visit the restaurant at the end of the tour.

Not really interesting, just a ton of artifacts from the Byzantine era, some are small and broken. Not recommended.
