I think I was more impressed with the reconstruction of the building than I was with the actual museum. It consisted mostly of busts and not much else. Doesn't take long to go through at all. It is pretty much open-air too so there's no...More

Have to say I found the building more interesting than the museum contents! Is a really impressive reconstruction and well worth a visit. The museum exhibits are limited in range and number but also worth viewing. At a cost of €8 a pop, it won't...More

This nice little museum is a nice place to peruse amidst the pleasantries of the agora. It's worth mentioning off the bat that you do not have to pay to visit this museum, as long as you have your ticket for the agora. Whilst housing...More

The museum of the ancient agora (forum) is located in the first floor of the Attalos stoa (portico). The building was reconstructed in the 1950s to resemble its 2nd BC appearance. The museum hosts artifacts from the Mycenaean and geometrical era (8th century BC) mainly...More

I really love the Museum inside the Agora and enjoyed taking my son inside. The highlights for me were the ostraca on display and moreso the kleroterion. Go for those alone. The sculptures outside are great to wander past.
