  • Greek archaeological museums are always going to be good and this is no exception. It's laid out nicely so you get a sense of how the Greek cities and Macedonia developed over time and what changed after becoming part of the Roman empire. There's some amazing statues, stone deeds of sale for houses, gold myrtle leaf crowns. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Finnaly a museum where the information panels are not killing you with info overload. Perfect. Many, many other, even the most famous museums could learn from this one. And amazing collections. 🤩 Love it!
