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...!

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
