Our tour group visited in the evening and it was very quiet. This very modern museum has excellent English labeling. It is well-organized and explains the history, art work, and artifacts very well to the traveler unfamiliar with this epoch.

Wonderful early Christian & Byzantine relics well displayed. Helped provide a context for the remainder of our trip through northern Greece, Albania, & Macedonia. Well worth the time.
