In a modern building in Paphos new town. Filled with artifacts from sites in and around Pathos. All presented very nicely in chronological order. The museum contains some priceless artifacts, some several thousands of years old. Pieces from The Pathos Archeological site are here, so of interest if you have visited there. My only observation is that it might have... More

The Paphos District museum is located in upper Paphos on Griva Digenis Street and though small has many interesting artefacts on display. If you have visited the archaeological park then you will enjoy the museum even more and you can imagine the articles being used in the Roman villas in lower Paphos. The rooms are well laid out and contain... More

Paphos Museum This museum is small, 3 large rooms with artefacts in the garden. You wouldn't take more than two hours to look round. The first room has the oldest artefacts from 8,000 years BC and the third room has 16. Century artefacts. The rooms are spacious and airy and most of the artefacts are clearly labelled in Greek and... More

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

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. It is an easy, cheap and convenient bus ride from Pafos harbour bus station, and the... More

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.

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.
