Nice little museum at the sight of Epidavros Theatre. Loads of artifacts to view and well preserved marble statues. Not much for small kids. Set in a beautiful area. Facilities include a nice restaurant nearby for a cool drink or lunch. Worth a visit. Parking good and drive not too far from Poros Island.

One of those museums that look like a beginner arranged the displays. Poorly presented. Needs a major overhaul and improved lighting.

Situated in the Epidavros archeological site, the museum itself is the most uninteresting part of it. Lots of Greek Gods statues and parts of ancient buildings put all together loose their true value. Very little info about the place they were found or what they represent. The good part is that it was included in the ticket with the theater... More

the smallest of the museums I went to. Dont remember seeing it in 94 the first trip I made there. Amphitheater is amazing and you could spend an hour wondering around it before seeing any of the grounds. Another hour in the museum. Easy hour walking the grounds. Find the restaurant on the sea at the end of the road... More

Amazing site, we spent 3 hrs there. When we got back to the car, discovered that our car had been broken into and my computer and heirloom jewelry had been stolen. The thieves had hit all 6 cars in our row in the parking lot. The security guy was there and did absolutely nothing to help, and the people at... More

It is tiny and already included in the price + at the end helps you see how the site was before - only useful part, the rest is very weak - I'm spoiled I was at the archaeological museum in Athens just before! The site is weak too compared to others (Delphi, Olympia) - the only reason to be here... More

The museum had many interesting artifacts. The grounds were made up of remnants of buildings and a stadium. The thing NOT to miss is the only remaining complete free-standing Ancient Theatre. Performances are still done there. They even allow tourists to have a chance to speak from the stage. Hearing your voice echo where thousands have been heard before is... More

This museum is quite small and will take less than 30 minutes to complete. If you are tight on time, you could miss it and not miss out too much.

Not that much of a must see or interesting a museum but it does display some items of found on this site and as it is part of the ticket no harm in looking inside.
