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.

The museum is beautifully located in the main road through Steni. It houses a large number of implements and household artifacts which are all numbered. There are books available explaining the corresponding numbers which make it easy to follow through the museum at your own pace. It is surely not the dark and dusty picture that comes to ones mind...

This is an high quality small museum that's very well kept and depicts village life in recent past centuries on the island. Every artefact has an id tag that you can read about in the comprehensive presentation handout in English. There is parking with stairs down to the museum, however there is relatively level access with a couple of steps... More

What can I say - this is something really special. The village has taken great care to collect as much "old" stuff that they could get their hands on - thousands of things - and put them in a little museum that highlights life in the village - not just Steni, but it was the same for all the villages....

Surprising find in very pretty village of Steni. Well worth spending 20 minutes on this free attraction that is superbly kept and an obvious labour of love. Of especial interest was the dentists pliers! Not for the faint hearted! Combine with lunch at the friendly, excellent value and very tasty taverna over the round, and a very enjoyable trip all...

The museum contains a wealth of traditional artefacts of Cyprus village life, both small and large. It is well laid out and it is easy to spend an hour here. Not quite so good for young children.
