What I can see

The findings cover a time span from the Neolithic to the late Roman period. They are developed in 5 halls and a covered patio, and come from the Panos Cave in Oinoe, the Sanctuary of the Egyptian Gods, the tombs of the Athenians and Plataeans Marathon fighters, and from the wider Marathon area, both from historical and prehistoric times. The section of the part of the Trophy with the Ionian capital, which was erected in Marathon after the battle with the Persians, is of special importance. The museum also includes the Tombs of the Bronze Age.

What I can't see

One of the sections of the museum is dedicated to the era of Herodes Atticus. Herodes Atticus was a great votarist of Athens, a benefactor and sophist of Roman times and a landowner in the area.
