Nice house in an interesting courtyard (complete with ancient tomb and small "chapel"). The guidebook has "souvenir value" only, being dry and "not... More

My husband and I had our wedding here 8 days ago. It is a magical, calm, shady setting in the middle of Paphos, ideal for the traditional cyprus touch that I wanted. My thanks to Fryne for making our wedding so special. A very interesting museum, well worth a visit.

This small owner occupied museum was full of charm and uniqueness. Freedom to roam and look through the exhibits. It's important to support these small private collections.

This museum is located in a very nice area that you can have a walk around, have a coffee o snack on the Mousalas hill top with amazing view to the whole city and sea. The museum is interesting and they also do wedding functions there. Next to it is also Byzantium museum and the old church of Agios Theodoros.
