Museum takes 30 minutes, then definitely go outside to see the Tumulus from the middle hellenic cemetery. This is an actual dig site that has an elevated walkway that lets you tour it.

Very nice newer looking museum with artifacts from nearby battlefields. Tells the story of the battle and shows the remains of the trophy that was erected. Also included is an excavation site that you can walk over.
