Archaeological Museum of Epidaurus

Archaeological Museum of Epidaurus is a museum in Epidaurus on the Peloponnese peninsula of Greece. The museum was established to display artefacts unearthed in the ancient site of Epidaurus. The museum has reconstructions of temples and architectural components, particularly those found at the Asklepieion Sanctuary plus a collection of Greek and Roman sculptures.

A collection of inscriptions is also displayed in the museum and under the portico of the main building. The museum’s collection of votive inscriptions and bronze medical instruments provide insight into the practice at the sanctuary of Asklepios.
