Greeks do their museums well (after all they invented the word), and this is no exception. Suggest starting down below in the earlier eras and then build way to the Roman and later periods. Don't miss the mosaics or more daily materials like glassware.

Whether you are a tourist or not. It will really not disappoint you in any way... Especially if you live in Greece you should know about it’s long long history for more than 2500 years!

The Museum is in a modern building and the staff helpful. The displays are good and in most places there is an english description of the item.

We enjoyed our visit, especially the gold and jewellery displays.

A very beautiful museum. In a few hours you can learn the History of Thessaloniki, Macedonia and Northern Greece in general. The most interesting part in my opinion is the section of the "Macedonian Gold".

We were positively surprised by this museum. It does not only have an impressive collection, but it is also housed in a modern building with a very well-organised exhibition. It is certainly worth the € 4 admission.
