Artifacts from the nearby theater and sanctuary can be seen here and thus demonstrate the functions and history of the sites.

We expected Epidaurus to be interesting, but we had no idea about the extensive museum. Many artifacts from 2500 years ago, many in beautiful shape. The site had been filled with statues and some originals and many copies are in the museum. Must visit both on the same trip and it should take 2-3 hr.

After visiting the site, visit the museum. On each of the placards around the site, you'll find out exactly what the corresponding museum pieces are, such as the frieze of Artemis' temple. The museum will really complete your vision of the sanctuary. I'd say I only spent 15 minutes in the museum, since I already knew how everything "fit" into... More

This museum had lots of early medical tools and information about the baths here. It was interesting, but some may want to skip it if they've seen too many museums. It's definitely worth a look.

A short 2 hour drive from Athens, it was a lovely day-out. Kids were very impressed with the acoustics of the stadium, when I sent them to the top seats and dropped a coin which they clearly heard. We really liked the museum, its small but impressive. Very enjoyable and visit highly recommended.

This museum rounds off the sanctuary very nicely. It contains a lot of the main finds from the site itself and everything is well signposted in various languages for people to read. It is very simple to walk though and while small it is well worth the visit

No possibile to leave Epidavros without visiting this little but important museum. All the evidences inside symbolize the real aspects of the life at that time... Aesculap's statue is much more than a symbol...
