“An excellent museum with Egyptian art”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

The museum isn't huge, but well-worth a visit. They have a collection of Egyptian sculptures found nearby as well as my favorite grave stele in all Greece - an image of two farmer brothers.

“Interesting museum”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

The Archeological museum of Marathon is situated about 5 kilometers north from the Tumulus of the Athenians in Marathon. It is not very large but has an interesting collection on display, including pottery, ceramics, statues from the Sanctuary of the Egyptian gods in the area and others. Inside the same enclosure there are the Funerary Tumulus of the Plataeans who fell in the great Battle, and inside the sheltered area, the Middle Helladic tumuli.
The combined ticket costs 3 Euro and is valid for Museum, the Tumulus, and other archeological sites of Marathom

“A hidden gem in Marathon”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

When you visit the battle site of Marathon, just make sure you drive a few kilometers to the north in order to visit the Archaelogical Museum of Marathon. It is small, but very well organized and gives you a very good idea of the period from the 6th century BC to the Roman times.
