À wonderful museum. Small but very interested. You can admire Athens Panatheneua amphorae. Also, next to the archeological site and Eretria's ancient theater, build in an artificial hill, it's famous for the acoustic.

Compared to the breadth of archaeology available to see in Greece the museum at Eretria has very little. But the entry fee is only 2 Euros and you can easily spend an hour here examining the small number of finds displayed. So, a small museum...More

The Archaeological Museum of Eretria is very easy to find, along the road running past Eretria, a lot of parking space. Very good for getting acquainted with local history. Strangely, captions in Greek and French only, no English. EU language policy after Brexit?

Spent a half hour here with the well presented finds from three sites including Eretria. WC but didn’t see a cafe. Free car park. Site entry is free. Museum €3 (2017)

We first visited the mountain close by and had a guide who told us about the areas history, then we visitied the mosaik house and then this museum. So it was a good follow up to see the actual items we had been told about.

The museum has many interesting exhibits - notably an early kiln, a stone "tablet" showing the residents of the area in about 500BCE giving their names and family connections perhaps an early census for tax purposes? Well worth a visit.

I'll start with the issues to allow you to determine if they would put you off visiting. Firstly, the museum is pretty small and therefore doesnt take a great deal of time to look around - although this might be a good thing for you!...More
