The Stoa of Attalos is situated in the Ancient Agora. It is well reconstructed and gives you a nice look into the ancient architecture. It also shows you the size of the buildongs, which the ruins do not give justice

Now it's a small museum with quite a few nice sculptures and pretty view from second floor. Toilets are here too. Worth visiting as a part of larger area, ancient agora.

The Stoa of Attalos is located within the Agora of Athens and is only a small part of the historical wonder within this vicinity. It was built by King Attalos II of Pergamon, who ruled between 159 BC and 138 BC for which it is named after. The actual building was reconstructed during the 1950’s, which now encompasses the Museum... More

The Ancient Agora in which the Stoa of Attalos is located is incredible! The Stoa had been reconstructed illustrating the grandeur of the building and housing the statues and ancient artefacts that once adorned the Ancient Agora. We spent about 30 mins in the Stoa and about another 30-45 minutes walking around the ancient agora. I would recommend this to... More

At its time it should have been an impressive building. It is in the same site as the Agora and Hefaistos temple. It is also a reconstruction but it gives us an idea of what the architects have done in the amcient times

An amazing insight into the lives of ancient Athenians. The particular building has been restored to highlight the genius of the ancient geeks. There are a raft of relics, preserved ruins of pottery and copper that highlight the site perfectly. It is ordered chronologically in both Greek and English so that you can walk with the ancients.

The Stoa of Attalos is a reconstructed stoa as it would have looked in ancient Greece. The building is massive and monumental, and its reconstruction makes it easy to imagine how other ancient buildings might have looked. The building houses a small museum which mainly exhibits pottery.

I am not of the Evans school of reconstruction, but as far as rebuilding ancient sites goes, this is decent. They would never do this to an ancient site these days, but it was the trend up until the mid-20th century.
