small but cute

No surprises for this little museum. Nice artifacts inside and the entrance ticket to the site does apply for the museum too

The museum at the site is a bit of a period piece - very basic signage and a ramshackle feel. Worth a stroll through.

The holdings here are worth a visit while visiting the theatre. The theatre is worth a trip as is the massive archeological site adjacent to the museum. Here you will see the remaisn of the healing centre this site was in ancient times. Of course there is a stadium on site as well.

Even the staff at the museum will tell you that the artifacts housed here are not of the greatest quality. Many (most?) are Roman-era copies of classical era creations. Still, if you've gone to the trouble of visiting Epidavros, you owe it to yourself to spend a half hour in the museum.

The museum houses ancient medical artefacts and stone tablets with cures etched into them. There are ancient busts found during the excavation of the theatre. There are three rooms in total and is a must see if you visit the theatre.

This small museum gives insight into early surgical practices, with surgical instruments on display. It also houses relics and statues from the temple of Aesculapius (Asclepius).It is well laid out but we were lucky to have a guide who could tell us the history of the site, which was a centre for healing.

very interesting exhibits, although the museum is relevantly easy to access the theatre needs a little more effort if you have mobility issues.

The museum is small and quaint, but filled with interesting art objects and medical equipment. Beautiful grounds, worth stopping in to view.

This little museum on the archeological site of Epidaurus gives some insight in the building of the temples, but most interesting in the medical equipment, which was used at that ancient times...!
