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.

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

Lovely place - the labour of love of the mayor of Steni who established the museum and collected all the artefacts, helped by the villagers, as a history for younger generations and visitors. We were privileged to meet him and he gave us a guided tour. We compared our childhood experiences of similar era and had a lovely visit. There... More

This is like someone's personal collection of memorabilia which gives it a personal touch. There are descriptions in English and plenty of background to each exhibit. When we went we had the place to ourselves
