The second section concentrates on topics related to the citys everyday life. Following a period of recession during the 5th century B.C. as a result not only of the Persian wars but also of its opposition to Athenian domination, the city is reorganized and flourishes during the 4th century B.C. New public buildings, as well as luxurious private houses are built, substantiating the citys well being.

Public life is presented through exhibits connected to the function of the Agora, the Stoai and the Gymnasia. On the other hand, private life is represented by architectural remains of houses, household utensils, as well as groups of objects related to marriage, womens life, children and domestic cult practices.
