  • Excellently structured in terms of both the navigation path and the presentation of the impressive content. Regarding the latter, it is worth noting that its wealth is not limited to the-always impressive-ecclesiastical exhibits, which usually monopolize the premises of the Byzantine museums. Finally, I should mention something special. I bought the ticket for multiple sites visit (Byzantine Museum, Archaeological Museum, Roman Agora). While browsing the sites I fell, which I realized reaching the gate of the Archaeological Museum. Returning to a desperate search, I found the ticket at the reception and the officer responsible to contact the archaeological museum so that I would be allowed to enter... THANK YOU VERY!!!

  • I can recommend it. They get 15 euros in three museums in bulk. There's a great café and restaurant in the garden of the museum.

  • Excellent museum. Great; interesting exhibits, effectively presented
  • Beautiful, a lot of artefacts. It felt a little bizarre that the guardians were all the time with eyes on you like you did something wrong. But the exposition is magnificent, totally recommend if you are a history fan.
