A small museum with some of antiquity found in nearby area. But the best pieces are in museum in Athens.

It is worth to browse around now that you visit the massive theatre. But the best pieces are in museum in Athens.

The museum is worth a quick look but is quite small and not very well laid out. It looks like the signage and displays have not been updated for 50 years!

This museum is small and we had a quick walk through, as we were in the area visiting Epidavrus theater. Some interesting statues, but other than that nothing impressive.

I did a quick walk through of this museum while I was on the grounds visiting the larger site. It's impressive, but I didn't need a whole lot of time in here.

Nice museum. (airconditoning is always nice). But the guards were quite impolite, when my daughter was posing with the statues. 'No posing with the statues.' Weird.

This museum is similar to those in Corinth and Mycenae. You will see sculptures that looks the same along with pottery. It's still an enjoyable experience though. Check it out.

You pay one admission ticket for this museum and the site. It gives you an idea what the site looked like in ancient times including an insight into healing

It is more or less just a room with casts of what was once found. But since you already paid 12 EUR to get in, you might as well go see it.

The museum of the Sanctuary of Asklepios is next to the theater of Epidaurus and included in the ticket price. The Sanctuary reached its zenith in the 4th and 3rd centuries BC and was a renowned place of healing. The museum includes a collection of sculptures, pillars, medical equipment, and other articles from the rich history. The museum has good... More

Well worth a visit! Truly amazing to see what the Greeks could do years before Christ, more than 2000 years ago. The ancient theatre next to this museum is amazing!
