Inside the Museum of Byzantine Culture BFor some the most important museum of the city, as Thessaloniki is arguably the city that has the most intense Byzantine character and beauty.

The museum is housed in modern facilities that include advanced, well-organized conservation laboratories and storerooms. Hundreds of unique exhibits and artifacts throughout the entire Byzantine period are displayed in several different rooms. It has a rather imposing atmopshere while the presentations are well organized and informative.

Discovering Thessaloniki's Byzantine past

It is divided in several different thematic sections and collections that cover a wide time period of the city's Byzantine past. Wonderful mosaics and wall paintings, Byzantine icons and religious architecture, impressive jewellery, rare books and scripts await you there.

A café restaurant, a small amphitheater and a separate section that hosts outdoor exhibitions are some of the extra features available for the visitors.

Inside the Museum of Byzantine Culture BIt is considered one of the best designs of public architecture in Greece, as it successfully combines the Greek architectural heritage with modern elements while using modern materials in a really clever way.

The Museum of Byzantine Culture has been awarded the Council of Europe's Museum Prize for the year 2005. For years it remains one of the favorite destinations of the city for the majority of the visitors! You won't have a hard time finding the museum as it is right next to the Archaeological museum in the centre of the city.
