  • I wouldn't drive to Marathon to visit the museum, but if you are in the area it is worth popping in. 1/2 hour is probably plenty of time. The museum is just about marathon running, so it's not of much interest to non-runners.
  • A great museum well worth a visit. Staff are most welcoming and very helpful.
  • This place is well informed on the history of the sport and was truly a great experience for those love running.
  • Small but rich in all kinds of memorabilia museum of marathon runs. A lot of history, also interesting film about the marathon runs. Only 2e entry.
  • The museum is dedicated to the various marathons they have been run since the modern Olympics started in the late 1800s. It has little if anything to show for Greek legend of marathon and with so much to do in the surrounding area it is hard to to recommend this as a stopping point in your travels. The museum is nice but small and you can get here from Athens on the KTEL bus for about 4-5 euros, takes 1.5 hours.
