The Musesum of the Macedonian Struggle is a historical museum that presents the local history and cultural identity of Macedonia, keeping alive the memory of the struggles of Hellenism and highlighting the role of ordinary people who left indelible traces in a diverse cultural heritage.

With the tours one discovers a lesser known but ideologically charged chapter of the Greek and Balkan history of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The Museum is open to the public Monday-Friday 9:00-14:00 and Saturday 10:00-14:00.

Well worth a visit to increase understanding of Macedonian identity and the late 19th/early 20th century conflicts in this part of Greece. A collection of photos , artefacts, portraits and dioramas + two good video shows tell these stories effectively. At only 2E (1E for over 65s) this is very good value.

Not familiar with the Macedonian struggle,I went to the museum because I was walking by it. I was warmly greeted and offered assistance in watching a film. The museum portrays well the struggle . . . and a struggle it was. I am glad they are keeping this history alive.

Very well put together, albeit small, museum about the Macedonia Struggle. Well organized and just the right length for the material that was presented - coming from almost no background on the subject as it is glossed over in the States. It was one of many smaller museums that we made sure to add to our itinerary while in Thessaloniki... More

I have been in this museum during my trip to Thessaloniki city. The museum is located near the center of city. The guide was very kind, pleasant and informed me about the Macedonian struggle. I recommend to visit it if you have the chance, it worth it.

This is a very well laid out museum with full English descriptions and explanations throughout. It's not too large but it's packed with fascinating information about how the local Greek population fought for what they have today. What a struggle !! Once you have seen this, so much of what you see in the modern city and in Greece as... More

In the heart of Thessaloniki, the Museum of the Macedonian Struggle give us the opportunity to learn about the Macedonians and their efforts. Very well organized, silent rooms and atmosphere, gentle hospitality and interesting books to buy and have them for a life. I will visit the Museum again for sure...

The country of Greece and its' islands, particularly Crete, has a very complex history which most people are not aware of. The museum is small and a tour, including watching the videos would take an about one and a half hours, is worth exploring.

We had a very interesting visit to the museum and were helped by a great guide (Sophie) who helped us through some of the more complicated aspects. Most items had English summaries so that helped a lot. The old building housing the museum is also very attractive and we enjoyed that. We emerged much better informed about life in Thessalonika...
