The ticket to acropolis includes this museum. It is in a restored building designed to look ancient at the place of an ancient arcade. Nothing really important to see.

The place is in the ancient Agora and is rebuilt but even so it will make you feel like in ancient Elada walking thru.

We ate here four times during our one month stay in Athens and we loved every meal. The moussaka, lamb in the oven and beef with feta were our favorites. Also the white wine from Crete is really nice.

The building is in the Ancient Agora at the foot of the Acropolis. You walk the Panathenaic Way and this if off to one side. Within the same grounds is the nearly intact Temple of Hehe st us, which looks like a smaller version of the Parthenon. There are bathrooms here and it is a good place to cool off.... More

While it is not the original, it is still very worthwhile to visit. The statuary in the museum is amazing and it's fun to get a feel for what it must have been like back in the day.

Which means ticket is already included in the Acropolis ticket valid for 4 days so why miss it? It has been reconstructed to house a small museum and make you feel like a Greek of the ancient times going to the mall.

This was my favorite part of the trip to Athens. The building is beautiful and they have restored parts of it so you can walk around freely and see all the amazing statues, pottery, coins etc. that have been recovered. After visiting the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus we were quite disappointed as although it is amazing how old... More

In ancient times this area was a type of shopping mall. Now reconstructed to look like the ancient mall turned museum. A nice hideaway from the heat and interesting historical showcases inside. One that sticks out is a display thought to be handled by Socrates himself while in hiding. They show an ancient voting system as well as day to... More

This reconstruction is part of the Greek Agora, and also functions as a present day administrative block and museum. It must have been an exceptional building in the pre- Roman times and today, of course with its striking red roof it seems a bit out of place. But what structure it would have looked some 3000+ years ago, in fact... More
