We toured the museum to learn about the earliest efforts at modern medicine and viewed the instruments that were being developed and saw the statues honoring Asklepios and others.

Do not skip the museum when visiting Epidaurus Theater and the Sanctuary of Asklepius - it has some great ancient medical instruments.

After visiting the theater, don’t forget to visit this small but nice museum. There are many statues, friezes, explanations here as well as parts of the theater. Free with your theater ticket.
