Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited this musem after the most attractions were done and this one was far more interesting because of the working models of mills and videos of how things worked back in the days.
Well worth of the time and the 2€ entry fee

A lovely museum with friendly staff. The ground floor shows some aspects of daily domestic and working life. There are also some working models of water powered machines. Boys' toys, but not. Our guide was a lovely enthusiastic lady. Upstairs, there is a great collection of costumes. The museum is a short taxi ride from the centre, say 5 euros. The museum does not feature on a lot of maps or in guides. It should do.

A gem of a museum! The main floor is taken up by interesting original farming, weaving, and logging artefacts, as well as working models of traditional water-powered technologies. But it's the second floor that steals the show with its extensive displays of exquisitely designed regional ornamental (with anything from jewellery to decorative materials to sea shells) folk dresses (mostly women's). Well worth a leisurely visit.

A little gem of a museum. The attendant set all the working models going for us , including grist mills and water wheels. Lovely old house in quier setting off a busy street.
Perfect for children but us 2 adults really enjoyed the displays.

This museum is very well organized. It is housed in one of the beautiful houses of the 19th century with a lot of history. They have a large collection of costumes and jewelry from different parts of Greece. They have an excellent exhibit of the use of water mills.

The building is beautiful inside from what we could see, not sure why there appears to be no history of this.

The lady curator didn't speak English, accompanied us throughout, and turned on the machine exhibits. A surprisingly enjoyable and educational folk exhibition with a film and demonstrations all machinery for adults and children.

One of the most beautiful preserved builidngs east of the centre, you can combine in with a walk by the promenade. It often hosts interesting exhibitions. What few people now is that they can enjoy their drink at the garden cafe

It is a very interesting museum, located in the heart of the town. It has very well informed photos coming from the history of Thessaloniki, and drives you through time. The yard and the garden offers a very nice spot for relaxing, especially during summer time!

The Folk and Ethnological Museum of Thessaloniki is housed on a neoclassical villa, worthy of visit in its own right. If I am not mistaken it is one of the villas of the affluent jewish family of Modiano in Thessaloniki and a beautiful building as well. The collection inside is extremely interesting and quite educating. Also there are some really fascinating automatisms which demonstrate the use of machines of the past. Of course, as it is a folk museum, there are plenty of traditional outfits. However, that which impressed me the most was a magnificent stained glass in the reception.

All in all, you'll gain something if you choose to visit it, be it the beautiful architecture of the villa or the collection inside.

Went with husband and 5 year old son. A lovely garden and a very child friendly museum. Many interactive devices that help children understand and see how the everyday activities of the past used to be, as making flour in a mill, spinning wool etc.It is easily accessed by bus as the parking in the area is very difficult. Can be combined with a nice walk by the sea. Children will love it.
