A very well presented and organised museum with a reasonable entrance fee. The dimmed lights add atmosphere but uses dramatic lighting on the exhibits. Notes on each item are also written in English. The amount of artefacts, including a considerable amount of gold and silver,...More

Vergina is the kind of site that, no matter what you have heard, or read before, once you enter,you are magically tranferred at the right time and place. You realise first hand the true majesty of the macedonian kings and empire, and feel even more...More

I'm normally a reluctant visitor to the sites and sights of the ancient world, but this is breathtaking. The workmanship of the 2,300 year old artefacts is quite extraordinary. Gold and ivory, and much more. A great visit.
