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

I have visited this museum several times and each visit is most interesting as it is constantly renewing its displays ... We learn every time something more about our country.

The Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia, placed in the old city of Nicosia is a most place to visit when you visit Cyprus where you can learn about the history and social development of the city of Nicosia from the Chalcolithic period to the present day. As one of the oldest and richest cities of Europe I strongly recommend it!

This museum is the best that I have seen here in Cyprus.It is situated in the old part of the capital not far from the main pedestrian street Ledras. It was once the house of a well know doctor and former Mayor of the city. It is a MUST SEE for anyone visitin Cyprus and Nicosia.
