This is a small museum about village life in Cyprus over the years, but it's very well presented with lots of interesting information. Booklets with information corresponding to the artefacts were available in different languages. Entry is free and there's parking nearby.

Liked the quaintness. Nothing not to like. Guide very knowledgeable, he has some family history recorded in the museum. Cafe across the road is good for a break or snack.

This little museum is just lovely, the local Muhktar Elios has spent many many years collecting artefacts from his own family and elsewhere and the displays are really quite impressive, it really does give you a flavour of what village life was like here in Cyprus all those years ago, if you're lucky and Elios is on site he will...

I normally get really bored in Museums but I loved this one. It is created with a collection of items from the homes of people who lived in the village, anything from front doors dating back to 1844 to clothing, furniture, kitchenware, tools and lots more.

A small but perfectly formed display. Well laid out and beautifully presented. You'll have to go far to better this.

This little museum has been beautifully created and kept by the villagers of the surrounding areas themselves. The trip to Steni village is along some lovely mountain roads with great views and the village itself is well kept with a good taverna/restaurant opposite the museum. There are a lot of steps down to the museum and it isn't air conditioned... More
