    This private museum, a collection of small, timed to coincide with the battle of Marathon, there is a small separate indoor stojashij excavation, as well as Museum Hill (but you have to ask to have opened the caretakers) is the burial of the deceased soldiers, you can go inside and see the graves, on the way to this museum somewhere in the 1 km before there's a big indoor raskop-cemetery with tombs of wealthy residents boards (not charge). Educational for children and students of ancient history. Some variety-not all swim and eat delicious food.

    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...  more »

    There is the same "classic" things that can be seen in a Greek Museum but in small quantities. The Museum contains only three small rooms. We do turn to a small cemetery in ruins little interesting in two minutes by my watch. The site was left totally abandoned. And hospitality... It really looks disturbing. In short, no need to travel.

    A nice small museum with colections from neolithic to roman times from the area. Intresting statues of the egyptian gods. Nice garden for a walk with the tomb. The protohellinistic tombs were closed. Worth a visit.

    Was at Marathon on 9/11/14 to thank the Greeks for what they did there. The museum is near the Platean's mound. Was a lovely experience with a charming older gentleman who showed us around including the new building which allows you to walk over an excavation site on elevated walkways. The experience was quite moving for me when you know the history of the battle that saved western civilization, and proved a constantly squabbling bunch of Greeks in a new form of government could come together at a time of crisis when attacked by a dictatorship which always seems to strike the first blow. Thank you Greece.

    A small museum, which contains priceless cultural and cultural treasures of Greece. The most important exhibit is the portion of the trophy of the battle of Marathon. Features section of Egyptian exhibits. Don't miss the Mesoelladiko cemetery just 10 metres adjacent, with separate of tumuli. Unfortunately the functional tumulus of plataea to the surroundings of the Museum does not work all day and you need to call in advance to find out the hours a visit.
