This is a very interesting collection focused on history of Nicosia and Cyprus with some great exhibits. Free but contributions welcome. Some great jewellery, pottery and costumes. It is not large and is therefore very manageable in an hour or so. Toilets.

Museum showcases a variety of items from various eras in the history of the island. If you only chose to visit one museum in Nicosia, or your time is limited and wand to spend it strolling and exploring the old city, then take some time to spend in this museum as well. It's well situated right in the heart of... More

Don't be put off by the slightly drab exterior and the closed doors, to this building. Inside is a wonderful FREE museum. An absolute must, if you want to learn about the island's past.

Leventis is the best of the museums we visited in Nicosia. Compared to Cyprus Museum this place was far more interesting.

I didn't expect to find something like that in Cyprus. Great selection of art pieces, the building features many technological aids to help you learn more for the exhibits.

A very modern building housing the private collection of Leventis family, very affordable entrance fee. It took me 90 minutes to view all exhibits so if in Nicosia and have a couple of hours to spare, it is really well worth seeing

The museum presents the whole history of Nicosia. Even locals must visit as many parts of the history shown are unknown. The building is a classic Nicosian design and one of the most beautiful ones. Check for new exhibitions. Must re-visit!
