The Museum of the Roman Agora of Thessaloniki was recently inaugurated and it is located next to the ancient site.

The Roman Agora was constructed in the late 2nd century AD and it constituted the administrative centre of the town till the 5th century. The excavations started in 1962, while the restoration works began in 1989 and created an important archaeological site to visit in the centre of the town. 

The museum houses findings from the excavations and narrates the history of the town of Thessaloniki through centuries. It is open daily, except Monday, and the entrance is free.
