Trip Planner: Europe / Greece / Central Macedonia / Imathia Region / Veroia / The Byzantine Museum of Veroia
The Byzantine Museum of Veroia was opened in 2002. It is housed in the old Markos mill adjacent to the city walls of Veroia in Central Macedonia, Greece, on the boundary of the listed quarter of Kyriotissa. The museum’s founding mission is to make known the monuments in Veroia and the surrounding area, which date from Byzantine and Post-Byzantine times, to make the traditions of the area known and to collaborate with other Byzantine museums in Macedonia to organize periodic exhibitions. The museum’s three-storey building will house permanent exhibitions which will retain their artistic self-sufficiency.The exhibition entitled "Veroia, Part of the Byzantine Empire" is on display on the first floor of the building. It is a particularly fine collection of portable icons (many of which are double-sided), wall-paintings, mosaic floors (from the courtyard of the church of Agios Patapios in Veroia), manuscripts and early printed works, pottery (ceramic items for everyday use and glazed pottery), Byzantine coins and wood-carvings.Sources The original version of this article was taken from the corresponding article at the Museums of Macedonia website, commissioned by the Macedonian Heritage foundation, written by Vlasis Vlasidis, and published under a CC-BY-SA-3.0 license.Plan a trip to Veroia easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

I'm not really fond of byzantine art-crafts ,by the way you get a better idea of the place if you visit it.It's very central and not big. more »
Beautiful artwork set in a really cool repurposed building. Clean & well laid out over 3 floors, wheel chair friendly. Lots of good English descriptions, but the very friendly staff helped with the ones I couldn’t read. You can buy a combo ticket for here, the Veria Archeological Museum & Phillips Tomb in Vergina 10 miles away (saves €2). All 3 easily done in an afternoon.
A very well laid out, well lit museum, with a lot of mainly religious artefacts from Byzantine and Ottoman era veria. It is a shame it seems so neglected by tourists. I was the only person there and the woman at the counter said yes. If you're near veria and interested in art/ history, pay it a visit.
