The glorious past of ARIS Thessaloniki, a team with remarkable history in both Greek and European basketball, especially in the 80s and 90s, is displayed via the exhibits of the ARIS Basketball Museum. Among these are 21 cups the team won in and out of Greece, since the first championship in 1930, the European cups (1993, 1997, 2003), up until the last Greek Cup in 2004. Above each trophy a TV screen shows the games in which these cups were gained. Another impressive exhibit is the wall covered by 96 balls bearing the names of major ARIS players.

At the museum, jerseys, shoes and photos are hosted, as well as the famous lucky jacket worn by Giannis Ioannidis (ARIS’s coach during the most successful era), artifacts belonging to the team and national team of Greece, superstars, and those of Nikos Galis, the most important player in the history of greek basketball, who won the Mr Europa Player prize of the Year in 1987.
