Very informative. Well presented. Not a very large museum child friendly. Bathrooms are clean and a meal at the restaurant across the road is highly recommended.

The owner\guide\muchter is always eager to fill in the details of Cypriot village life as it was. A few things have changed little. The village setting is tranquil and can be pleasantly strolled around. There is a great taverna across the... More

A small but very interesting museum crammed with all sorts of items from the village and about Cyprus generally. A nice little village with a useful coffee shop/restaurant nearby

Located in the pretty village of Steni just off the main road from Polis towards lysos. It is a very interesting museum full of traditional material which forms village life in Cyprus. everything is well presented, and explained in booklets provided. It is well worth a visit any time of the year.

I had read about this museum in Cyprus guide books. We were staying in a villa nearby. The village is very picturesque. The museum is free and runs on donations. It is very well kept. It was very interesting and we learnt alot about Cyprus life through the ages. My Mother was with us who comes from a rural background... More
