The museum has quite a few rooms with some interesting finds. The cost is 2 euros and included seeing the archaeolocial site right outside. The hours in March were 10am-5:30pm. I couldn't spend much time in the museum as the guards were smoking in there, and the smoke hurt my throat too bad. I did not enjoy standing in a... More

Came to the island as a day trip from Athens and walked to the museum from the port. The museum is small but well looked after, the grounds are more expansive with a great view from the headland and temple site

A really excellent museum with pieces from antiquity right through to modern times. Friendly staff and very quiet considering the quality of the museum and the archaeological site. Well worth a visit.

If you are on the island of Aegina you must visit this site. It is very interesting. Inside the museum proper there are models of the surrounding town and walls from late Neolithic onwards. After this go out and look at the various excavations around the museum. Highly recommended.

This museum is located within a great archaeological site. With your ticket you get access to both the museum and the site. The museum itself is quite small but it's worth a visit!

Excellent little museum that does give one a sense of the ancient site. While some may complain that it is too small, the upside is that on a short trip you can fit it in without being rushed. There is the added plus that if there are family or trip members who are bored by such things, you don't detain... More

So many excibits starting from 10 BC and such impressive temple and site. I feel ashamed that in my entire life I have never visit this rough diamond called Archaeological Museum of Aegina. They deserve better marketing promotion and more funds. It is such pity such place that doesn't get the right attention.

We visited in 1998, so our review would certainly not be valid now, sorry. But is was worth the time spent.
