Love museums that invest in the everyday life of the era they represent and this one does it perfectly. Also the building itself is amazing. Strongly suggest it, plus you can combine it with the archeological museum that's right next to it

Fantastic museum, but I wish I had known that the closing time during winter is 4pm. The exhibitions are elaborate and the explanations in English abundant. A reason to return!

I have longed to see a Byzantine Museum and this was a great chance to see things that cannot be found anywhere’s else. There is also a section on post-Byzantine art that shows how the Orthodox Church was influenced.

It is a very small museum with very few interesting pieces unless you are interested in orthodox religious paintings. There are many much more interesting Byzantine museums in northern Greece.

This is the crown jewel of Thessaloniki museums, even if only by a few notches over the city's Archaeological Museum. In its long history, Thessaloniki has been a Byzantine city more than anything else (over 1,000 years). In conjunction with visits to the city's many...More

The museum if very good with a nice atmosphere and good exhibits a bit small compared to other European museums but it's pretty interesting without being boring or tiring you. You need about one and half to two hours to see it and then you...More
