Great on-site museum with a nice variety of artifacts. Most certainly worth a 20-30 minute walk through if you're already at the Ancient Agora anyways. Highly recommended.

The museum at the Ancient Agora is located inside the parthenon-styled monument and it is not huge. You could easily walk through the 2 floors in about half an hour. There are several statues and busts of prominent ancient Greeks.

First of all the reconstructed Stoa is absolutely fabulous. Really really impressive. And the museum, despite being small is really great. The ostraka of Themistocles, Aristides, and Kimon are particular highlights, and there is also a really nice Exekias Krater. A really excellent museum!
