About The Agora Museum – Athens

The Agora Museum displays finds and artefacts from the site of the Ancient Agora of Athens. It is also located within the reconstructed ancient building of the Stoa of Attalos.

Originally constructed in the mid-second century BC, the Stoa of Attalos – once a popular shopping precinct and meeting place – is named after the king who built it, Attalos II of Pergamum.

For those visiting the Ancient Agora of Athens, the Agora Museum is a good place to start as it helps you make sense of the ruins with models of how the site would once have looked.
