The museum is small but worth a visit. Some of the displays are replicas. Photos allowed but no flash. The entry ticket includes the museum.

This is a very small museum and you can see everything in less than 10 minutes. If you are visiting the Epidaurus Theater, check it out as it part of the archeological site. The fee includes the theater.

Decided to get there on morning as the sun was dangerous...32°C under shadow... The ticket price seemed to be high at the beginning, but my thoughts changed once i saw the size of the area and saw that there were actually workers there working in restoration of the area. The theatre is just incredible, and a lot of people where... More

This is an ancient ruin, and a historical site. We had reviewed the place and drove past it and decided to visit. If we hadn't driven past it, not sure if we would have visited. But it was good.

This is a very small museum. It is possible to see entire museum from the entrance. There are few interesting items here from the vast archeological site nearby. However, spend more time on the actual stadium and sites and save this for the last.

After visiting the site, you may want to spend a few minutes in the museum. It is fairly small. A little bit disappointing however, if you have been to a museum like the one if Delphes (Delfio). The fee for the museum is included in the visit for the overall archeological site.

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.

On my first bus day tour here over a year ago we were marched to and from the theatre but on this self drive visit we were able to take in the entire site including this small museum. Some of the originals and some copies of statues from the site with good info boards...some beautiful architectural features/recreations and a cabinet... More
