Displays really not that impressive but it is included in the ticket price to the Epidavros Amphitheater. The informative about the cult of the time was interesting and that it was supposed to be a place of healing.

I could not understand what the guards was saying, but they do not want you to "pose" in front of the artifacts. You can take photos, but not with a person in the picture - so be forewarned. This museum, although small, is chock full of interesting items from the Epidaurus site - well worth a visit and is included... More

The theater which we all know about was only a part of the healing center which was ancient Epidaurus. Here was the home of the cult of the god Asclepios, the healer. The museum is built in a recreation of the building that housed the patients who made their way from around Greece for healing. You'll see several miniature reconstructions... More

Amazingly well preserved statues and other relics. The museum isn't necessarily the best curated place in the world, but if you come to the site, you've got to go in and see the treasures.

If you visit the theatre of Epidauros the visit of this museum is included. It consist of two rooms and contains a lot of statues, not much more. Some heads of lions as a part of an ornament. The statues are well explained.

Located near the Theater of Epidaurus, this relatively small museum boasts of original collections from the ruins around. The most impressive of which is the statue of Asklepios, the Greek God of Medicine. A must place to visit while in Epidaurus.

This is one of the better museums we visited. There are contracts and treaties written in Greek on stone tablets. Like something out of Fred Flintstone. The Corinthian column they have displayed is so detailed and intricate and is up close and personal. It is an actual specimen to and is in incredible shape. They have ancient medical surgical tools... More

The theatre and the archaeological ruins are the key part of this tour but the museum is worth a quick visit to see some really high quality ancient sculptures.

a smallish exhibition of some original bits of worth, some plaster copies of originals and some mislabelled curiosities- lions not dogs chaps - they're on the temple of Artemis -really!
