Small bite sized museum

Just pop in. Very cool to see the statue of Askepius with his snake. Gives the theatre some context.

We didn't spend much time here. Not a lot of info about what you are looking at and really no help around to even ask them about it. It is included in your ticket, so at least walk through it.

After sitting in and marvelling at the Epidaurus theatre the museum felt small and a little tame but it's informative. Worth a visit but don't expect too much

Even though the building is small for such important exhibits, it is really worth a visit as well as the whole archaeological site.

This museum cannot help but be a bit small. The reason is because so much of the actual area is in ruins. They do an excellent job at displaying the pieces of history that had survived over the centuries.

This small museum houses beautiful artifacts. It is a small space so patience is required when entering spas there most likely will be many people trying to view the statues. Flash photography is not allowed and be careful not to touch anything. There are museum docents that can answer questions or translate if you need them to.

A small museum, located in the archaeological space which hosts a number of beautiful smaller and bigger things that were found there. I really suggest a visit (it's free anyway) you won't waste your time, promise.💝💝

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.
