Museum Of The Macedonian Struggle
The Museum is located in the city center as the national benefactor Mr. Andreas Syngros had the vision of establishing the home of the Macedonian struggle and he decided to finance this project.
The museum was designed by Ernst Ziller and opened its doors in 1981 operating inside a neoclassical building.
In this building was operating the Greek general consulate from 1893 to 1912.
The museum is a private property and it is run by the Association of Friends of the Museum of the Macedonian Struggle.
There are many important exhibits with the arsenal of the times holding a dominating place while uniforms, the memorabilia and the personal items of the leaders of the Macedonian Struggle (1904–8) also holding their exceptional post.
The numerous uniforms, a collection of 1,350 contemporary photographs the explanatory maps, books, newspapers, and paintings of the Macedonian landscape in the late 19th and early 20th century are completing the total picture.
The exhibits occupy seven rooms and are grouped as follows:
- Macedonia before the outbreak of the Struggle
- The struggle in western Macedonia
- The consulate and the organization of Thessaloniki
- The office of the consul Lambros Koromilas
- The role of the people of Macedonia in the Struggle
- The Struggle in central and eastern Macedonia
- The Struggle in the Lake of the city of Giannits
- The events in Macedonia after the end of the Struggle and the revolution of the neo-Turks’.
