Historical Museum of Alexandroupolis


The Historical Museum of Alexandroupolis was built in 1995 after many years of cooperation between the local citizens and with the Greek Ministry of Culture.

It has a remarkable collection of paintings by artists who were active in the area. It also hosts a large part of the work of the important painter Hariklia Hadjisavvas-Fotiou. In the museum you can explore a collection of approximately 1000 books which relate mainly to the history of the city and Thrace in general.

Next to the permanent exhibition of the Historical Museum of Alexandroupolis, a rich archival material has been collected consisting of photographs, publications, newspapers, magazines and old objects. All material refers to the history of the city and is archived and digitized. It is worth noting that the material is constantly enriched.

If you would like to visit the Museum by car you could park in one of the 2 private parking lots that Alexandroupolis has. The first is located in the port and is 500m far from the Museum location. The second is placed right next to the bus station (KTEL) at a distance of 200m.

If you would like to visit the museum by plane please not that you will need to take a taxi from the airport for a distance of 2km.
