We had our wedding here in July 2015, could not have asked for a better venue for it. Lovely and private, well taken care of by Fryne and excellent environment for pictures. Certainly worth a visit if you are interested in history and an excellent venue if you want a slightly different setting for you wedding that is unique and... More

Wish I could give 3.5. Simple little museum family run, and very informative of local recent population

Exhibits include costumes, particularly rural costumes and trimmings, traditional carved wooden furniture, farming tools, kitchen utensils, clay artefacts, looms and woven articles, as well as archaeological finds, mainly from the Chalcolithic period. A private museum belonging to Eliades family. The private collection of objects come from the Neolithic Age to the present day. The stone building that the museum is... More

We were SO pleased we visited this museum in the old town. We were warmly welcomed by the owner of the house who explained a little of its history before we were able to wander around the house, small courtyard gardens, and a small chapel hewn out of the rock. Over the years she has collected many artefacts showing the... More

Although certain aspects of this private museum are interesting, and the rooms are set in a beautiful building, I did get the impression that proprietor was quite money orientated, we asked how much the entry fee was, and thrusting a guide book in my hands, told me it would be 12 euros, but didn't mention that we needn't have taken...

This is a small museum of Cypriot artefacts and general memorabilia. It's OK (if the power is on, it wasn't for quite a lot of my visit). It's nicely amateur, but obviously Mr Eliades' pride and joy. Nice house in an interesting courtyard (complete with ancient tomb and small "chapel"). The guidebook has "souvenir value" only, being dry and "not... More

This small museum was in our guide book so when we were in Paphos old town we thought we would pay a vist. The collection is within a large old town house which also has a beautiful courtyard. It is packed full of curiosities, particuarly relating to traditional Cypriot life and culture. This is a small museum and worth a... More

Would have been interesting if they had been open when they said it would!! Luckily there are some really good places to have a drink and snack nearby!
