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...

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.
