Dedeagac's history is finely documented with many pictures and artefacts. And is often incredible: the harbour town changed rulers a couple of time, housed seven consulates and pplayed an important role in Greek history. Vry good exhibition. Nice staff that will give you English translations of the Greek texts.

On big Dimokratias Avenue is since 2011 the 'Istoriko Mouseio Alexandroupolis', for which - with funds from SNF (Stavros Niarchos Foundation) - had been constructed a modern and quite attractive building. Entrance fee is 2 Euros. On the ground floor are temporary exhibitions like paintings by local artists. On the second floor is the collection by researcher Eleni Filippidi, who dedicated part of her life to the study of the fascinating subgroup of the ethnic Greek Sarakatsani, who led a life as transhumant shepherds in most of the southern Balkan mountains until the 1950's. Here can especially be seen dresses of these people, but also everyday tools and a lot of information, but only in Greek - as everything in the whole museum, which thus cannot be called very tourist-friendly. In the 3rd floor is the History part, with old photos of mainly Alexandroupolis or - as it was called in Ottoman times: Dedeagaç. There are also some finds from antiquity and many interesting information boards about the towns past. All in all a good and worthwhile to visit museum, especially if one understands and reads Greek.

One of the most important regions of Greece, but also of the entire Europe, in terms of ecosystems and biodiversity, Evros could not but have a Natural History Museum. It is located in Alexandroupolis and it consists of three big halls that introduce visitors to the magic world of nature, genetics, geology, the special species of the region and its ecological and geophysical peculiarities. The first hall of the Natural History Museum of Alexandroupolis gives information to the visitors on the types of protected areas and the peculiarities of ecosystems in Eastern Macedonia and Thrace. The second hall has a modern technology system for the display of a great video-documentary on the biodiversity of Evros. In the three spaces of the hall are presented the basic categories of the region’s ecosystems
