A superb collection of artifacts, the Archeological Museum houses important finds excavated from an archaic temple at nearby Thermi, tombs at Sindos, the Egnatia highway (the ancient road from Rome to Constantinople), the Thessalonki-Skopje road, and a railway line. The collection includes gold jewelry from the 6th to the 2nd century B.C., and exhibitions explore the history of Thessaloniki and the region, from prehistoric times to the Roman era. In short, it covers thousands of years of Macedonian history, and does so in a way that's quite accessible, featuring videos and interactive exhibits alongside all of the precious archeological finds.
