The Museum for the Macedonian Struggle collects and documents the modern and contemporary history of Greek Macedonia. It focuses on the developments that shaped the growth of Hellenism in the region. The museum’s collection consists of rare 19th and 20th-century artefacts related to everyday life in Macedonia, the weaponry and personal objects of fighters, as well as rare original documents from the period. The collection includes military relics of the Balkan Wars belonging to Greek, Serb, Bulgarian and Ottoman Army. The Museum occupies a neo-classical building built in 1893.
