As a museum educator, I highly recommend this museum. It has wonderful bilingual interpretation. It has incredible mosaics. It is NOT jam-packed with tourists!

Like the site, the museum is small, quiet, and nice. The museum is actually the entrance to the site so if you're stopping by, definitely do both. There is a lot of history in a small space but it is interesting and makes for a...More

Isthmia has been one of the 4 ancient Greek sanctuaries, hosting Panhellenic meetings and sports games, similar to Olympia. Very worthy to visit.

Visit of this museum will make your holiday more attractive. I stayed at the Hotel Saron and one day decided to visit this museum with my mum. And it is not a bad place where you can meet with history.

Small, but very nicely setup and maintained museum. Very interesting mosaics and the remains of Pan-Hellenic Isthmian Games structures. Glass mosaics of Kechries displayed in the Museum are unique and worth a visit. While in bad shape (obviously) they were partly restored by scientists from...More

The Museum is small but the displays are excellent. The Roman glass panels are especially impressive. The signs on the site explain the ruins very well. Be sure to follow the path down to the stunning bath mosaic.

I stopped here because this was once the site of the famous Pan-Hellenic Isthmian Games, but there wasn't much to see, at least of the stadion. (There are also the remains of an ancient temple of Poseidon, which may be of more interest to some.)...More
