What I can see
In the basement of the newer building of the School of Philosophy of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the Cast Museum is housed and belongs to the Department of History and Archaeology. It houses approximately 700 casts of antiquities from the Minoan to the Byzantine era, as well as over 2000 original vases, coins and other antiquities from Thessaloniki and the region of Macedonia. Among the most important casts are those of the Parthenon frieze, the Kouros of Sounion and the pediment sculptures of the Temple of Zeus in Olympia. The museum also has a laboratory, a small amphitheater and photographic archives with more than 7000 photographs.
What I can't see
The museum’s role is primarily educational for students and the public and aims at research – mainly for postgraduate students and PhD candidates – and the promotion of the sciences of history and archaeology.
