The Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art is a vivid example of Thessaloniki's close relationship with art and culture. This museum is special because it represents a citizen initiative, the members of which decided to create a contemporary art center.
The museum's permanent collection includes more than 1,800 works by Greek and foreign artists. Donations made by collectors, artists, gallery owners and individuals continue to enrich the collection. Following the footsteps of Alexandros Iolas, Franz Geierhaas, Magda Kotzia, A. and D. Ksidi, G. Apergis, N., A. and X. Sahinis are also great benefactors of the MMCA.
Here, apart from the permanent collection, temporary exhibitions are hosted, as well as discussions on art related topics. There is a gift shop and a cafe in the museum.
