The museum contains good artifacts even though it is small. It may be seen after visiting the Amphitheater on the way to Sanctuary.

Not all survived in the Aesclepion - the ancient hospital and spa resort. But there's still a lot and you can use your imagination. In the museum there's a striking collection of ancient medical instruments.

Once you've walked around the site (and do visit much more than the wonderful theatre), spend some time at the Museum. It's not huge. But it is important, and it will round off your Epidaurean experience. I particularly enjoyed the artefacts that relate to Asklepios.

Visiting the ancient ruins of Epidaurus with its magnificent Theatre, don't hesitate to get into the small museum. It contains all the fragile pices from the surround ancient Greek Buildings with sufaces with ancine vibrant colous stil there. The museum staff are willing to explane to you secrets of ancient constructions or ancient colour hand made technics.

Visit the theatre first, then drop by this museum if there is still time. Just a lot of statues in there and the instruments used by ancient doctors.

The museum itself is quite small but worth a visit. A must see is actually the theatre and the ruins. The guides are excellent. Plenty of parking. Make sure you pick up a slush on your way out. Delicious and many flavors to choose from.

Small, but with some fine scultures and explanations. If you don´t have time to go there, no need to be very worried about
