The Aphaia Museum is on the grounds of the Temple of Aphaia and houses remnants of the temple. Some of the more important artefacts one can see there include a restored section of the temple pediment, a copy of the original which is at the Munich Glyptothek (it shows the goddess Athena, though the temple was dedicated to Aphaia). There is also a votive tablet from the first half of the 6th century BC stating that the temple was dedicated to the goddess Aphaia. The museum also contains fragments of statues, ceramic vessels and stone tools, among others. A model of the temple is on display at the museum entrance.
