The Thessaloniki Sports Museum was founded in 1998 and 10 years later, in January 2008, the International Olympic Committee recognized it as the first Olympic Museum in the country.
It is housed in a private building at the junction of Agiou Dimitriou and 3rd Septeptemvriou streets, a hub of sporting, educational and cultural significance. Its construction boasts multi-functional versatility, thanks to the presence of a fully equipped amphitheater, two multipurpose halls, a cafe and a gift shop.
Its objective is the preservation, enhancement, information sharing and involvement of the public in matters of sporting heritage. This is achieved through its significant exhibits of collectibles of the Olympic Games, such as uniforms, equipment, Olympic medals, memorabilia and items from the Olympic Games. In this context it continuously organizes educational programs and parallel events.
