The Stoa of Attalos is a covered walkway connected to a larger building located in the Ancient Agora city. The building is grand, well maintained and a full set of facilities (rest rooms, an air-conditioned museum). The Stoa hosted the inaugeration of about 10 countries into the EU in 2003. The building itself was dedicated to King Attalos II. Overall... More

Approaching the building I really wasn't aware it was a wonderful museum, I thought it might just be another large antiquity you could view and move on. Wrong! First, it isn't really an antiquity anymore as it has had massive restoration, and behind the front of the building with statues and such there is a world you will love to... More

This museum is on the way to ancient Agora and has some wonderful sculptures including some headless statues. Intricately detailed carving on most of them.

Very huge building with lots of sculptures and a nice museum. Heavily restored. Also a very good place to rest for a while and to cover from the sun.

This site was excavated in the mid 1800's then the Americans came along in the early 50's and built/rebuilt what stands today - an amazing demonstration of ancient architecture. There is a museum within the walls so worth seeing, included in the Acropolis ticket. A big plus for us is the toilets and water bubbler. You cannot miss this structure... More

Much better than the overrated and underwhelming marquee Atheian attractions. Cool inside with some interesting pieces

It was a nice building and a lot of nice display outside but when you go inside more pottery display and a good way to cool off from the heat of the sun. Their museum inventory is pretty good.

This is one of our favorite Sunday walks. The area around the Stoa is wonderful, like walking in Ancient Athens. It is quiet, full of olive trees, and in the summer you can hear the cicadas and gaze at the Stoa and really feel like you're about to bump into Socrates. The Stoa itself is a small, cozy museum, filled... More

We visited after walking down from the Acropolis. It was a nice break from the heat as well as having lots of displays of pottery, jewelry, gold, etc.
