I was in Athens recently on a 5 day trip and took the time to visit the Agora. The Stoa of Attalos is in the Agora complex and is definitely worth visiting. Highly recommended!

if you visit Ancient Agora, then you can visit this place as well. We just enjoyed the exterior, and it's very nice to see the sunshine between the pillars ;-)))

The Stoa of Attalis is the largest building you'll find in the Ancient Agora. The building itself is quite a marvel (and a challenge to capture in its entirety even with an ultra-wide angle lens!). There are two floors containing exhibits of what else but semi-ruined statues. Worth a look, especially since you would have paid for the entrance ticket... More

Strolled through while walking the Agora and there is plenty to see. While in the main level I took many pictures of awesome artifacts. When going upstairs taking a picture of the view of the agora a lady asked to see the pictures I took and tried to make me delete them. I showed that it wasn't inside and she... More

Purists may only want to see what's original, even if that means ruins. But there's a lot to be said for seeing at least one quality reproduction of an ancient Athenian structure in all its glory. The scale and artistry of this Agora building speak more clearly than words of Athenian wealth and accomplishment over 2,000 years ago. There aren't... More

This huge, 2-story ancient shopping center featured about 45 columns outside and offered a neat little museum inside. Very interesting!

The reconstructed Stoa of Attalos is part of the ancient Agora (4 Euros per adult ticket, 12 Euros for 7 various archeological sites in Athens). The building dates back to the 1950's and consists of a museum and 2 floors filled with statues, sculptures and busts. Despite the Stoa of Attalos being reconstructed, it's not at all an eyesore within... More

If you have time, definitely visit other museums in Athens. But I like this one in particular because it's small, has artifacts nicely displayed with explanations, as well as the history of the area, and it is not overwhelming like the big museums can be.
