Museum of Macedonian Struggle

The Museum of Macedonian Struggle is located in the most central spot in Thessaloniki, next to the Grigorios Palamas cathedral on Proxenou Koromila Street.

It is housed in an 1893 historic building which was constructed to the designs of the famous architect, Ernst Ziller (during Ottoman rule, this was the General Consulate in Thessaloniki). The collection is considered to be one of the richest and most up-to-date as far as mementos and documents from the period of the Macedonian Struggle are concerned.

The 6 halls on the ground floor display photographic material, historical documents, maps, various weapons and uniforms as well as personal items from the period of the struggle between 1870 and 1912. In the basement there is a model display of scenes of the Struggle and in the lecture hall on the first floor you can admire A. Haitoglou's collection of Greek army weaponry.
