Museum of Byzantine Culture reviews
I’m not a huge museum fan but this one was well laid out and interesting. Mind you with so few visitors you tend to get followed around by the staff as you explore each room. Definitely worth a visit. more »
Find the museum next the the larger civic centre. Well presented artefacts giving a great feel for the local area. more »
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.
