Tarchaeological museum thessalonikiThe Archaeological museum of Thessaloniki is one of the most beautiful and important museums of the city. It is located in the center of the city in Manoli Andronikou” street right after the Byzantine Museum, on the south of Thessaloniki Trade Fair.

It is easily accessible from every part of the city, while it can be easily found without being an experienced traveler. Like many other destinations in the center of the city you'll have the chance to combine your visit to the museum with other places of interest because of the small walkable distance between them.

Impressive exhibits and rare collections

Due to the city’s rich Ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine history the museum hosts a variety of exhibits that will impress every visitor. Beautiful samples of Roman architecture, unique colorful mosaics, sculptures and jewellery from the Greek Classical and Hellenistic period await you there...

Ιn 2003 it was completely renovated and re-organized into six permanent thematic units, while several temporary exhibitions take place annually hosting many collections in collaboration with some of the world's most important museums.

The “Gold of the Macedon” and the new permanent open ground exhibition called “Field House Garden Grave” are definitely some of the most interesting areas of the museum. In the South side of the museum there is a cafe available for all the visitors.
