A nice museum when your in the area, but not a very large collection. The museum is well maintained and there's sufficient information. Also has a interessting british collection on the top floor. However comparing this museum to the Cyprus museum: missing historical artifacts from roman period and excaveted artifacts.

It's always a good choice to visit the city musuem, if available, when you are interested in the history of the city. The history of Nicosia, closely linked to this one from Cyprus, is very rich. Thus a visit of this museum is recommended and besides it is for free. It is not a very big museum, so with a... More

If you are interested in the history of how Cyprus became split and would like to experience the weirdness of a split capital city...go over the borders! we went from the greek side to the Turkish side - our Passports were stamped and you get a good feel of the animosity between the nations. Lots to see and learn. Well... More

I would definitely advise to visit this museum as it presents the history of Nicosia in a very straightforward way and you do not require a guide as most of the halls are self-explanatory. The museum is free to enter and its very central location hints that you shouldn't miss it while you are in Nicosia.

On a whim we wondered into this museum and were thoroughly impressed. The collection is astounding and gives you a great sense of the multifaceted and multicultural history of the island. My favorite part was probably the fossils they had in the first exhibit and the pottery collections. It's not every day you get to see intact pottery from 4000BC!... More

A fascinating medium sized museum in the centre of the old city. Very well set out and organised. A very good potted history of Nicosia with lots of artifacts to view - be sure to obtain a map from the reception desk. Very friendly reception and security staff. Clean loos.

This is a very good museum, not too large, not too small, and we enjoyed our visit. We asked for maps of the museum layout from the desk by the entrance, which were freely given. Displays are mostly on Floor 1, some on Floor 2 including the exhibition which changes but which was costume when we visited. There is a... More

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.
