The Thessaloniki Archaeological Museum was built in 1962 (designed by the architect Patroklos Karadinos) and extensively restored in 1980, 2001 and 2004. It houses exhibits of Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic and Roman sculptures from Thessaloniki in particular and the Macedonia region in general. One wing hosts the finds from the tombs found in Vergina and is called 'The Gold of Macedon'.
