Not immediately obvious but use tourist office map and you will find it.We were really impressed with the way the displays were laid out.No pressure on how long you stay and very reasonably priced.It helps you understand the importance of Paphos and Cyprus over a great sweep of time.We were made to feel so welcome.

This small museum with some interesting pieces let's itself down with poor setup. Obviously we have been spoilt by UK and French museums. Quite boring but cheap.
