The museum houses a large collection of artifacts of the local archaeological site and smaller sites in the neighboring area, such as Korakou, Gonia, and Acrocorinth. The artifacts, which were systematically recovered beginning in 1896 by the Corinth Excavations, illustrate much about Ancient Corinth through Greek, Roman and Byzantine rule. Exhibits include statues, mosaics, pottery and sarcophagi. The museum consists of four rooms. In room one are finds from the prehistoric installations in the area and includes pottery, figurines, and tools. Room two contains objects from the Geometric, Archaic, and Classical periods. Room three houses statues of Roman rulers, floor mosaics, wall paintings and Roman and Byzantine pottery. The Asklepieion room contains mainly votives from the Asklepieion at Ancient Corinth. With the generous donations of Mrs. William H. Moore, the American School of Classical Studies at Athens built the museum in 1931 and its expansion in 1950.

Nice museum with interesting exhibitions and friendly staff. There is definitely room for improvement in both the wifi connection and the lavatories since the first one was quite slow and the latter only had 1 toilet per gender. But I did enjoy my stay and the museum is definitely recommended when visiting Corinth for a cultural trip.
Very interesting. A great place to visit. You will find out that Corinth was not just another ancient state but an important trade manufacturing and coltural center.
