The displays were very interesting and diverse. We spent over an hour there, just absorbing everything. It definitely should be on your must see list.

There is a lot to see here in this large multilevel museum. A discount is only given to holders of EU passports so I had to pay full price. Each room had 1-2 security staff watching us. After a while this becomes uncomfortable and I...More

Air Conditioned! So felt great! Very clean. Very well done. Amazing artifacts arranged in a way that gave you a good feel of this era in a good chronological layout. Teenagers who like history loved it and got good pictures because everything wasn't behind glass.

Identical as any other Byzantine museum; icons status etc but if you like those kind of religious history you will enjoy it. For me it was ok. Sometimes interesting.
