Museum lacks variety of exhibits. Once you've viewed a couple of images of Christ/ the Virgin/ Crucifiction, then rest all seem rather the same, unless you have a really deep interest in icons.

Would have been interesting if they had been open when they said it would!! Luckily there are some really good places to have a drink and snack nearby!

Amazing place to visit. I would recommend take plenty of water in main holiday months as the temperature gets way over what it is on the coastline. Not so interesting for very young children I suspect.

My wife and I visited this museum last week and were blown away with the exhibits. The paintings and icons (you can get close enough to the exhibits to be able to smell the history) one of which is dated back to the 7-8th Century! Really great don't pass up the opportunity to visit! :)

A breath-taking collection of Byzantine style icons, the earliest being 9th century. A definite must for art lovers

it is worth a visit if you have time. I would give priority to ancient monuments in pafos though as they are more unique than this

Really only interesting if you are interested in Icons and other relics from churches. You only need about half hour or so to visit.
