Museum of the Macedonian Struggle, Thessaloniki

4.5
The Museum for the Macedonian Struggle is located in the centre of the city Thessaloniki in Central Macedonia, Greece. It occupies a neo-classical building designed by the renowned architect Ernst Ziller and built in 1893. In its six ground-floor rooms the museum graphically illustrates the modern and contemporary history of Greek Macedonia. It presents the social, economic, political and military developments that shaped the presence of Hellenism in the region. This approach enables the visitor to form a global picture, not only of the revolutionary movements in the area, but also of the rapidly changing society of the southern Balkans and its agonizing struggles to balance between tradition and modernization.

  • we were anxious to see this museum and the photos and one video were helpful to understanding how Macedonia was treated over history. But many portraits of leaders/generals,, weapons, etc. were less....  more »

  • A detailed explanation of 150 years of struggle to assert Macedonian identity. Definitely one for historians out there, less interesting to casual visitors. We'll displayed with lots of explanation in English and a couple of informative videos. It's Balkan history so prepare to be confused as much as enlightened.
  • Gives helpful and clear overview of recent history in Macedonia for a visitor . Presented well with audio and visual material. Plus the helpful English translation meant we could understand something of the region's political history not just its ancient history.
