Later in 1968, the discoveries from the tombs of the Macedonian kings at Vergina were also bought to the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki. These included the golden larnax and the golden grave crown of Philip II, the father of Alexander the Great. These artifacts were displayed at the museum until 1997 after which they were relocated to the Archaeological Museum of Vergina.

To house the treasures of Vergina, a new building was required. As a result, the new wing of the museum was inaugurated in July 1980 with the exhibition "Alexander the Great". In October 1982, the museum held another important exhibition displaying the treasures unearthed from the cemetery of Sindos, a northern suburb of Thessaloniki.
