The theater is worth the visit

This is a nice set of ruins but the theater is quite spectacular for it's size and condition. If you are in the area this is a must see.

Although it was quite a trek from Mystras, Epidaurus was worth the journey. It is still used for concerts and the condition of the site is quite exceptional considering the age of it.

This little museum displays artifacts unearthed in the ancient site of Epidaurus and the surrounding area. It contains a number of large reconstructions of temple and architectural components, mostly found at the Asklepieion. It also houses an impressive collection of inscriptions as well as Greek and Roman sculptures. It's worth a look-see while you're in the area and is included... More

A small but full of treasures museum being part of the greater ancient Epidaurus area. Is often overlooked due to the dominant magnificent Epidavrus theatre but the treasure of this museum and the information that offers, although the exhibits are almost packed and the facilities could have been much better is so great that would recommend each visitor to spend...

The museum at the site is a bit of a period piece - very basic signage and a ramshackle feel. Worth a stroll through.

No surprises for this little museum. Nice artifacts inside and the entrance ticket to the site does apply for the museum too

The holdings here are worth a visit while visiting the theatre. The theatre is worth a trip as is the massive archeological site adjacent to the museum. Here you will see the remaisn of the healing centre this site was in ancient times. Of course there is a stadium on site as well.

Even the staff at the museum will tell you that the artifacts housed here are not of the greatest quality. Many (most?) are Roman-era copies of classical era creations. Still, if you've gone to the trouble of visiting Epidavros, you owe it to yourself to spend a half hour in the museum.

The museum houses ancient medical artefacts and stone tablets with cures etched into them. There are ancient busts found during the excavation of the theatre. There are three rooms in total and is a must see if you visit the theatre.
