A visit in the White Tower museum.

My cousin Platon,my son's Godfather, visited us for just two days attending an Archaeological Conference that took place in Thessaloniki.We spent too little time with him unfortunately.We visited the White Tower and I felt better to go out in the sunshine.
The White Tower is a museum inside. It is a round building with a big room on each of its six floors and many smaller ones.It contains the history of the city. 
The views from the small windows is gorgeous.
The exhibits include coins
and pottery.
The view from the top is breathtaking.
Some lichen on the top of the tower!
The National Theatre.
The Communication Tower.(OTE Tower)

Some years ago I visisted the museum in the tower with my sons. It had a special exhibition about daily life in Byzantine life. My sons were fascinated by it. And so was I by the way. Is this exhibition still there?
