I believe this was the only free public museum in Cyprus I visited. Extra point! A great deal of detailed history. Extra point! Interactive, absolutely children friendly. Extra point! Smiley, nice staff. Extra point! Leave some tips for them at the end: let's try to keep up this system where not everyone has to but everyone can contribute!

Well located in the old city, close by to the touristic Ledras street. It's free. Exquisitely displayed private collections of art and history presenting Nicosia up to 1960. It's a must.

been there on a sunny october day; not many people, so time to read the labels and posters; very good chronology of the history of the town through the ages; well presented, interesting objects; a museum that is NOT boring or designed just for the specialist; from prehistory to modern times. A visit worthwhile, and its FREE, with friendly staff!

The Leventis museum is inside the Venetian walls of Nicosia just outside of Laiki Gitonia. It's worth mentioned that the collection belonged to the Leventis family, and that is the reason it lacks some important artifacts of some of the historical era of Nicosia and Cyprus history itself. It's well ordered and labelled, and there's an animated video where you... More

It is a good place. We found it rather accidently but I think it is nice. We had good time there. The exhibits are well ordered and there are interesting explanations.

This is a small museum, but does a good job of explaining and illustrating (with objects and photographs) the past of this city, as well as the surrounding region, from earliest times (fossils, etc.) through to modern times. There is also an exhibition space for changing exhibitions. The museum is air-conditioned which was very important to us the day we... More

The musuem has undergone huge changes in the last 10 years and is a museum of high international standards. Many interesting exhibits which are continually changed - clear, easy to read details.

This museum is free and is a nice cool place to walk around. It is not big but there are lots of interesting things to look at. The ceramics were particularly interesting. The only downside was the surly and somewhat scary security guards watching our every move.
