The archaeological investigation of the palace started in 1957 by Charalampos Makaronas. The first building he uncovered was Building I, although he was not aware that he was excavating the palace of Pella.
From 1981 until 2011 excavations took place by M. Siganidou, L. Gounaropoulou, V. Missaelidou-Despotidou and mainly by P. Chrysostomou who uncovered a vast area of 60.000 sq. m., where the palace extended. In 2016 E. Tsigarida and A.Skitsa continued the excavations of Building II, which is still in progress.
In 2017 the restoration and enhancement project of the palace started with the restoration of The Monumental Entrance to the palace and Building I.
