Museum For The Macedonian Struggle (Thessaloniki)

The Museum for the Macedonian Struggle is located in the centre of the city Thessaloniki in Central Macedonia, Greece. It occupies a neo-classical building designed by the renowned architect Ernst Ziller and built in 1893. In its six ground-floor rooms the museum graphically illustrates the modern and contemporary history of Greek Macedonia. It presents the social, economic, political and military developments that shaped the presence of Hellenism in the region. This approach enables the visitor to form a global picture, not only of the revolutionary movements in the area, but also of the rapidly changing society of the southern Balkans and its agonizing struggles to balance between tradition and modernization.

Famous quotes containing the words museum and/or struggle:

    A Museum of fetishes would give special attention to the history of underwear.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    A little quaker, the whole body of him trembling,
    His absurd whiskers sticking out like a cartoon-mouse,
    His feet like small leaves,
    Little lizard-feet,
    Whitish and spread wide when he tried to struggle away,
    Theodore Roethke (1908–1963)
