I really liked this museum as you are the arms lenght from all the exhibitions and sculptures. They are not hidden away with ropes and plexiglass but you can actually feel the charm and touch of history

Very good museum about the nearby archaeological site. We visited this museum after visiting the Dion archaeological park but wished we did the opposite way. There is more information about the places we visited at the park inside the museum than at the park itself. The ground floor had some nice exhibits, while the mosaic in the second building was very impressive and well worth a visit.

If you're there, the entry fee is covered by the one to the Archaeological park, and it does contain some items recovered from there, but it's a bit low key overall.

Average museum. Yes there were some interesting pieces (pipe organ, Dionysus mosaic) but given some if the amazing museums Greece has to offer in this region (Thessaloniki, Pella, Vergina) this one pales in comparison. Plus, though this is only an issue in summer or when it’s hot, it’s not air conditioned (and yes that matters).

Museum has good collection of statues, coins, pottery, tools, and more, all from excavations in surrounding areas. Mosaics from thermal baths and villa are impressive.

Together with the vergina archeological museum. Dion is a great place to see inside museum and outside at the archeological park and the museum is a small diamond. Lots of history over 2000 years ago and great things to share and enjoy the museum and the nearby attractions. It is worth the visit definitely and it is very nice and important museum. You need more 2 hours to see all and visit it slowly and to share your thoughts with others.

What a surprise it was.
Beautiful museum with many things to see
Jewels,statues,everyday life and many more.
You could wonder around the statues that they where in the rooms and not beside a glass and it felt great.
I wish more people knew about the superiority of this museum

Your entree ticket covers the museum, the archaeotheke and the archaeological park, so there's value for money for you ! Dion was the sacred city of the Macedonians, at the foot of Mountain Olympos, so the museum houses a lot of significant collections, covering both the Hellenistic and Roman periods. The excavations are fairly recent, only starting in the 1930-ies and the museum was build to house the best pieces unearthed from the necropolis and the sanctuaries and baths of the ancient city. There are some wonderful statues, especially the Dionysos, Isis and Aphrodite and the Asklepios Daughters ; also some really elegant bronze statues and votive & grave monuments (standing stone stelae). Of particular interest, of course, is the water organ or hydraulic organ - an amazing instrument, especially if you keep in mind it was used in the 1st-century BC.
The Archaiothiki is a building adjacent to the museum ; it was build 10 years ago, specifically to exhibit the Dionysus mosaic ("the epiphany of the triumphant Dionysus"). It has a gallery upstairs all around the mosaic, so it can be viewed from all sides. Absolutely not to be missed !

Enjoyed a short film in English which explained the archeology, history and finds of this very extensive site. Some excellently preserved statues and mosaics. We visited the museum prior to driving to the Archeological Park. Recommend doing things that way round! 8 euros for both.
