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!

There is much more to Cyprus than sea, sun and sand. I always enjoy wandering the narrow streets inside the impressive Venetians walls of Old Nicosia. Today I visited the Leventis Museum which proved to be a very good way of learning more of the history of both the island and Nicosia itself. The museum is very well laid out... More

The Leventis Museum is in Leiki Geitonia, in a pair of mansions that have been modernised. It has many artefacts from the island, pottery and jewellery, as well as a history of the city to British times. Free, and has a nice cool courtyard ideal for relaxing and snacking.

I think fun is the appropriate work to describe my experience at this museum. From a projector playing a video covering the history, to a corner with interactive games for kids, this museum is a perfect alternative to discover more about Cyprus and learn more about the history of the island. The museum is close to Ledra street, and the... More

In the heart of the old city of Nicosia, a walk from the main municipal parking lot (Tafros), this small museum has so much to offer. The building alone is worth visiting. The permanent exhibition offers insides of the history of the island and the temporary ones are unusual and unique (lately it hosted drawings of children during the Turkish... More

I love the way this museum is curated and the thought that was put into the exhibits. I was able to appreciate the rich history of Nicosia and Cyprus. Admission is free and it is a great way to spend an hour and learn about the history and culture of Cyprus.

I visited the museum during the international museum day, as a family with two small kids. The museum offers a nice view of the history of Cyprus, particularly the Byzantine and Venetian eras. My older kid (aged 4) was quite happy with our visit and had a lot of questions about the exhibits. I would recommend this to Cypriots as... More
