Museum of Byzantine Culture Reviews

Our children (11 and 13) were bravely and were rewarded in the Museum Cafe with excellent pancakes :)
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. more »
A really interesting and enjoyable museum. Really worthwhile for the emphasis on daily life rather than religious art.
A must see in order to understand the Byzantine culture as well as the transition from Roman to Byzantine or else to Eastern Roman Empire
