Very well done. Great information and displays covering over a millennia downstairs (It is easy to miss the rooms downstairs and that would be a great loss), Upstairs are statues, busts and models of the surrounding area and how they have changed over times. The artifacts and explanations of how the area changed over the centuries was very interesting. Pots,... More

The rebuilt Stoa gives you a good idea of what the area was originally like. It's also easy to identify the most important objects of the museum.

When you see the great temple in the Agora you are seeing ancient history in amazing condition. But the Stoa of Attalos is a modern reconstruction of a real ancient building on the original site. This gives you the ability to see just how magnficent these buildings were in their prime. All part of the Agora visit.

This is a fabulous reconstruction. Which now has a collection of sculpture and some models of the Agora as it must have been at its apex.

This is how you can appreciate Ancient Greek buildings, the scale and proportions are magnificent, and it has an interesting museum. In the gardens are extensive ruins, but ruins are ruins they don't give you the scale of the building as this does!

An absolute must for any visit to the agora, but especially if you're a history person. Excellently maintained rebuilt stoa and a wonderful museum inside with some wonderful archeological artefacts on show.

Enjoyed walking through the museum which gave good explanations. The roof kept the burning sun off my head and shoulders in the August heat.

Visiting Stoa of Attalos is best with a guide, if you're interested in the history of the site. There are quite a few groups organized by private travel agents as well as public ones (free of charge, or very cheap) organized by the City of Athens. Reaching the site is easier if you use public transportation (Thisseio Metro Station). Some... More

This place has been nicely rebuilt so that we can get a sense of what it was like 3,000 years ago. We were told this was the first shopping mall in the world, and well it would have been.
