“Rare exhibits from Byzantium.”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

A beautiful museum with some rare exhibits from Byzantine period which was a great period for Thessaloniki. The exhibits are from the religious and everyday life of the people of Byzantium. Most exciting exhibits are byzantine orthodox icons painted by artists of this era. Really worth a visit.

“a well organised new museum for the city”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I liked the fact that it is not overcrowded and has visitors that are really interested to know more about the Byzantine History and culture, it is not just religion but part of the city's history and culture

“One of the best musea I ever visited”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

I admit that I am passionate about Byzantine culture. This museum is not vast, but it is a very modern concept, walking you through Byzantine culture. For instance, some of the best icons i have ever seen. Only pity was that a number of top pieces were on loan to other musea. We went at the end of July and the museum was quite empty. Entrance fees are very reasonable (students and under 18 being free). A must see if you are in Thessaloniki.

“Very good pieces”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

I admired the exhibitions but ı saw some politics against the Ottoman Turks. Some evaluations are not objective and scientific. Cultures are belong to human beings, not to the nations.
