The Thesaloniki Museum of Photography is an institution open to development which aims at the conservation, distribution and enrichment of its material by collecting and exhibiting.

The Museum activities have a three-fold goal:

a) collecting, documenting and promoting its permanent historical and contemporary photography collection
b) organizing and curating exhibitions and publications which study the photographic art and its numerous applications and multifaceted impact on societies
c) developing educational activities through which the public of all ages becomes familiar with the technical secrets of the image as well as the challenges stemming from the age of the image.
