Welcome to Thessaloniki Archaeological Museum

Thessaloniki Archaeological Museum

Regarded as one of the finest museums in Europe, Thessaloniki's Archaeology Museum near the famous White Tower and opposite the city's international fairgrounds, houses a huge collection including the incredible treasures of the tomb of Alexander the Great's father, Phillip of Macedon, which was discovered at Vergina in 1977. Another treasured artefact is the 3rd century BC Derveni papyrus, the only intact ancient papyrus found in Greece, which was discovered in the tombs of Derveni. Other rooms in the museum contain exhibits depicting the history of the city from prehistoric days through to the Roman period, including spectacular mosaics and some exquisite, delicate Hellenistic glass.
