Interesting reconstruction

The reconstructed Stoa houses a museum, which I actually found more interesting than the Acropolis Museum! Lots of every day items here. Located inside the Ancient Agora.

Worth visiting it. It is impressive and so is the Temple of Hephaistos in the same Ancient Agora complex. In this Stoa of Attalos you will find the Ancient Agora museum, also worth visiting it.

a huge construction that shelters an exhibition of wonderful artpieces. The construction itself is very beautiful and so is the exhibition. Worth seeing.

The Stoa of Attalos, in the Ancient Agora, was used in Greek / Roman times as a market and meeting place, and was later destroyed. It was reconstructed in the 1950s and has been hosting the Agora Museum ever since.

Great to see and feel what it was like to be INSIDE of every temple and structure in ancient Athens. Just be careful not to touch the real stones from the actual ancient Stoa, which are built into this building! Great place to visit!!

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.
