A little bit of Cyprus village history

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 good collection of local history has been assembled in this Museum. There is a monthly market held on the grounds the one 3rd sunday a month, after making your purchases of local crafts and home made foods you can have a great lunch across the road in a small restaurant which serves great food with very genrous helpings :-)

It's free, the collection is extensive and the objects give a wonderful view into the past world of village life. It's well worth a visit and the cafe/restaurant across the road is a good place to finish your visit off in.

One man's collection from his village. Like stepping back in time. Everything from nails to beds, ploughs to lace. Very interesting & there is a great little taverna across the road.
