We have been there with our kids. The kids do not pay a ticket. Adults pay 12 euros. The place is fantastic! It is better to read the history of Philippos before the visit! Road marking is not OK. In the entrance there is a small black and white sign prohibiting photos. We did not notice it.

Amazing museum and all underground in the tumulus itself. The finds are breathtaking. How much gold did the ancient Macedonians have so that could bury and lose so much?

Despite entering via a ramp to beneath the royal tumulus, you forget it is above you as the museum is so well built and laid out. There are 3 tombs you can see but only up to the front door which is closed. There are models of what they looked like inside when discovered and those artefacts are all on... More

It is one of the most important archaeological sites of the country along with the Acropolis, the Delphi, the Epidaurus and the Mycenae. It is the tomb where Philip, the king of Ancient Macedonia and father of Alexander the great was burried. The structure of the place is innovative. The museum is made right inside the hill where the tomb... More

Amazing, astonishing and well set up this can be a short cut to describe this archeological site. The museum is located on the burial area, where are the tumbs of King Filippo 2nd and other members of royal family. The museum is hidden inside a small hill, like the area was in the past. The visit of the tumbs, thanks... More

I have been to this museum three times and I always love it. This time I visited in March, and I was surprised to find hundreds of school children visiting. I guess whether you go in high season or low season, it is always popular! Finding the place is not exactly easy. There are virtually no signs telling you how... More
