We decided upon this trip as it was close to where we are staying and sounded interesting. When we arrived we were also greated by the Steni Village Farmers Market, 3rd Sunday of each month). The whole area was clean and organised. The museum building has been created by the Mayor of Steni and its residents over a period if... More

The museum requires a good 20 min for the average visitor and is free. It offers a glimpse into how life and tools evolved for people living on the Island (and elsewhere). Worth the stop if on the way!

This quaint, but well laid out and well displayed museum is a totally brilliant. The creation, design and lay out is all created by the local mayor Elias. Elias is the curator, the local mayor and a man of many talents. Speaking to many locals, he has created one of the most beautiful villages in Cyprus. The museum sits opposite... More

I happened across this museum on a drive into the hills. It's in a brand new large bright complex so has had a lot of recent investment. It was a hot Sunday late afternoon and the curator was about to close up but kindly stayed open and gave me a personal tour. Very interesting exhibits and the curator was obviously... More

We discovered this little gem quite by accident as we were on our way somewhere else. The museum is set in the lovely village of Steni, which itself is kept immaculately clean, but that is another story. The museum covers the life of the people over time's gone by, and these people were a hard working people, you have displays... More

This is one of the larger local museums I have been in and has a great deal packed into it. The presentation is excellent with lots of interesting narratives displayed. Our conversation with the curator cast even more insight into the tough life of the people of Cyprus.

Not big but interesting and worth a visit. Shows how hard life must have been years ago and still is for some. Short drive from polis. Very peaceful village.

It looks to be a recently established museum .Although not very big,It houses an a number of interesting collections of various historical items that reflect aspects... More

Went to Stenni for the farmers market which was very disappointing, only 2 farmers selling fruit and veg the rest of the stalls were crafts including one person selling sunglasses and reading glasses !!!. The Museum was very interesting, lots of village history and items used over the past 2 centuries some which everyone could recognise with the everyday items... More
