The Archaeological Museum of Philippi was built in the 1960s on the outskirts of the archaeological site of Philippi, in accordance with plans drawn up by architects I.D. Triantaphyllides and D. Fatouros. It was originally constructed as an archaeological “warehouse” to meet the need  for storing and protecting finds from the excavations which the French Archaeological School at Athens had conducted at the site of the  ancient city between 1914 and 1937, and from excavations by the Greek Archaeological Service, the Archaeological Society, and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki from the end of WW II to the present. It actually functioned between 1963 and 1992 as a small archaeological museum. In 2006 the Ephorate included the project “Archaeological Museum of Philippi: building improvements and re-exhibition” in the INTERREG IIIA/ PHARE CBC Greece-Bulgaria program, realized between 2006 and 2009. The building has two levels of exhibition spaces for permanent display of the finds from excavations of the ancient city: The first (380 m2) occupies the entire ground floor; the second (205 m2) occupies the building’s upper  floor. The exhibition of antiquities is divided into two chronological sections, each of which is further divided into several subsections.
