Thessaloniki - Museum of Byzantine Culture Museum of Byzantine Culture
The museum of Byzantine Civilization is a very modern building in the city centre, right next to the Archaeological Museum covering an area of 11.500 square metres. It is one of the most modern museums of the country and its goal is to gather, preserve, study and show art pieces and objects from the Byzantine era, from its period of great power until the time right after the conquest of Constantinople by the Turks in 1453. The exhibits come from the region of Macedonia and especially from Thessaloniki. The exhibitions are enriched with donations from donations of private collectors and institutions. The guests can see sculptures, mosaics, murals, paintings of saints, coins, pottery, hand scripts and items made of glass. The exhibits are presented in 11 rooms and are organised in 11 separate sections. Apart from the exhibitions in the museum, there are fully equipped laboratories for the preservation of the items presented in the museum, the temperature and humidity conditions of the rooms follow all modern regulations and there are rooms for receiving excavation findings. There is also an amphitheatre for lectures, rooms for temporary exhibitions and a gift shop. It is open every day 08:30-16:00, except Monday.
