this is a small museum, but it has many great artifacts in its collection. It is also across the street from the archaeological site of Eretria, so its easy to visit them both together.

À wonderful museum. Small but very interested. You can admire Athens Panatheneua amphorae. Also, next to the archeological site and Eretria's ancient theater, build in an artificial hill, it's famous for the acoustic.

Compared to the breadth of archaeology available to see in Greece the museum at Eretria has very little. But the entry fee is only 2 Euros and you can easily spend an hour here examining the small number of finds displayed. So, a small museum...More

The Archaeological Museum of Eretria is very easy to find, along the road running past Eretria, a lot of parking space. Very good for getting acquainted with local history. Strangely, captions in Greek and French only, no English. EU language policy after Brexit?

The museum is only two rooms but they are filled with treasures - many very old - from all over Greece - not just from Evia. The exhibit is a combined effort of the Swiss and Greeks, thus the notations are in Greek and French....More

Spent a half hour here with the well presented finds from three sites including Eretria. WC but didn’t see a cafe. Free car park. Site entry is free. Museum €3 (2017)

We first visited the mountain close by and had a guide who told us about the areas history, then we visitied the mosaik house and then this museum. So it was a good follow up to see the actual items we had been told about.

The museum has many interesting exhibits - notably an early kiln, a stone "tablet" showing the residents of the area in about 500BCE giving their names and family connections perhaps an early census for tax purposes? Well worth a visit.
