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.

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.

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

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.
