A visit to the Archaeological Museum of Aegina is usually combined with a visit to the nearby Archaeological Site of Kolonna, especially since the ticket of 4€ is valid for both places. It is housed in an austere stone building with a courtyard, in which are mainly exhibited funerary stelae. In the 3 halls of the museum can be seen pottery going back to the Bronze Age like pithoi (storage jars), amphorae (jars for transport) or an oinochoe (vessel for drinking wine) with a motif from the Odyssey painted on it. Other items are a model of a casting pit from the 3rd millenium BC or a pottery kiln (2nd millenium BC). The single most famous exhibit is a sphinx, found in 1903 at the Apollo temple of Kolonna. The information boards are in Greek, German and English, just as on the Archaeological Site.

Visited this small museum after crossing by ferry from Pireus to Aegina (1 1/4 hours). It is very handy as you can easily walk from the ferry point. The main focus has to be on the Temple of Apollo, which is fabulous. Mainly in ruins it has such atmosphere and we loved just sitting there, gazing out to the sea which was very close-by. We had a fabulous day just around the small ferry port village, on a beautiful day which ended by swimming from the beach.

The museum is small and cheap to enter but worth looking at especially if you have time to kill while you are waiting for a ferry. It is situated not far from the pier.
