I absolutely loved this museum. The treasures on display are stunning and having been to most of the sites they were excavated from it was great to see the day to day objects that would have been used in those places, such as the House of Dionysus. The Roman glassware was so beautiful and delicate. The only thing was wasn't... More

Went there this year with my 9 year old it's the last of the museums in the area he wanted to do, it was very quiet when we went, a really interesting but small museum, a couple of hours and we had seen it all

You have a good overview of Paphos' artistic history, starting well over five millennia ago with astonishingly beautiful pottery, leading through the ages with sculptures and even wall paintings that have survived wars on onslaughts from Greek to Roman, Arab, French and finally British.

A very extensive site, very hot even in September, with great ruins and mosaics from the greek/roman periods. Take plenty of water, wear loose cotton clothing and comfortable walking shoes. Loved it - simply did not have enough time to see everything

For a small museum has a great variety of artifacts. Some exquisite jewellery, fantastic figures, fluorescent glassware. Well worth the walk and searching out. Brown signs show directions to it.

This museum is neatly laid out. It has a good range of interesting exhibits spanning thousands of years of history from the Paphos area.

The Paphos District Museum is located in Ktima (the upper part of Paphos), close to the City Hall. There are some interresting ancient artifacts inside (like a rare sculpture of Goddess Aphrodite, holding a sword), beautiful organised.

If you've visited the the Archaeological Park at Kato Paphos and the Tombs of the Kings, spare some time to visit this small museum situated in Ktima (Upper Paphos) as many of the exhibits have come from these sites and the Paphos district. It is quite a walk from the centre of the Upper Town and you do begin to... More
