The museum might be a relatively recent initiative, but it is housed in a building that dates over 2,200 years old.
Indeed the Stoa of Attalos was originally built in the 2nd century BC, given by King Pergamon. In the renovated Stoa of Attalos dating from 150 BC, this museum houses important ceramic items from history, statues, artefacts and insight into Athens’ ancient way of life, democracy and topography, with objects dating from the Neolithic era all the way to the Ottoman Period. Worth mentioning here is the effort put by the American School of Classical Studies which has helped unearth intriguing findings in the area over recent decades. An easy one-line museum to appreciate after touring the Ancient Agora grounds.
