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

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 little museum is packed with interesting exhibits. It has a wealth of things to see, from ancient pottery up to more modern day items. http://ethnographicalmuseum.com/index.php/

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.

A great family-owned museum. The building itself was built at the end of the 19th century, and is interesting in its own right. A wonderful collection of traditional life in Cyprus in the old days, also covering a range of periods with numerous archeological findings and antics. All these set around the house and the wonderful garden, makes it an... More
