Modern museum in a tidy modern village. English guidebook to follow around the exhibits. Local tools implements kitchen farming ware etc. Nice and cool inside. Passes an hour out of the sun and some interesting bits to look at.

We visited this museum after reading all the great reviews on TripAdvisor. The collection is wonderful and the mayor was very helpful and hospitable. I would suggest that you visit the cafe across the street and try the local delicacy called "mahalebi". Steni is a very clean and pretty village.

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.

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. I found it so interesting and it really gave you an insight into what... More
