This is not the best we have ever been to but is still not bad. Lots of things to see. Alexander the Great and the gods were on display. Lots of funerary sculptures and good stories about them. Other museums in the city are also worth having a look if you have time. Can get a double entry for a cheaper price with the Byzantine Museum.

The museum is a treasure for the city. It is well organized, visitor friendly, open 8-8 in the summer, and superbly rich in exhibits, descriptions and stories! Following the main path, you will get to see many wonderful details about the history of this place and amazing stories about the day to day life of people in Macedonian times. Our kids, ages 7 and 12, loved learning about clothing and jewelry of that era as well as how people cooked and lived. The tombs with all that was found int them are exquisite, as are the mosaics. The gold that was found in Macedonian tombs is also worth the visit-- this is housed in a separate room so make sure not to miss it. The rare find of an amazingly well preserved 2000 year skeleton is a must see. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We finished our tour at the museum cafe with lunch that was very reasonably priced (22 euro lunch for a family of four cannot be beaten!) and quite good quality, unlike many other museum cafeterias we visited around the world.

The museum has an extensive collection from prehistory through the Roman period. The collection of Macedonian gold artifacts is staggering.

We spent hours in amazement of these excellent antiquities. Beautifully curated and very educational. Even with our backgrounds in history and culture, we learned so much. Highly recommend.
