The Archaeological Museum of Philippi contains two exhibition units in which the finds from the excavations in the ancient city are on permanent display:

Unit A: This unit takes up the whole of the ground floor and has a surface area of 380 sq. m. It contains the archaeological (inscriptions, sculptures, vases, coins, jewellery), historical and visual material of the city of Philippi and its region from the prehistoric period until the end of Roman antiquity.

Unit B: This unit occupies the first floor of the building, with a surface area of 205 sq. m. In here there is a presentation of the Christian city (inscriptions, architectural members, mosaics, vases, coins) from the Early Christian period of its rise until its decline in the seventh century AD, and its complete abandonment after the Turkish conquest of the late 14th century.

You must combine your visit to the museum with a trip to the Archaeological Site of Philippi, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
