First of all I would like to say that the location of the museum on TA current map is not correct: the museum is located on the grounds of Thessaloniki International Fair, pretty close to the Archaeological Museum. I was surprised by the number and quality of works displayed in this museum. Actually I knew nothing about the Greek contemporary... More

I do not know until when this excibion will be held,... More

The museum is well situated within the area of the HELEXPO. It is consisted of a limited permanent exhibition of mainly greek artists but it regularly organises worthseeing temporary exhibitions. The surrounding area seems a bit abandoned in the winter and for a visitor it is not easy to find the museum (the entrance is through a parking sliding door).
