Well worth a look for anyone with an interest in history. Well-presented, some cool finds from earliest times to late antiquity. Easy to follow, and don't forget to check out the larger pieces outside!

A big building but only 2 rooms with artefacts in, courtyard as well. However, what a display it is! Superbly laid out in historic order, not too much to overload a lay persons brain! Well worth a visit.

There are many pieces from the Neolithic era from the Khirokhitia archaeological sites. This makes it a pretty awesome collection, stuff from 7.000 BC as well as more recent Mycenaean pieces. Well worth seeing.

Some taxi drivers seem to have never heard of the place.... There are 2 halls open to the public with many exibits. These exibits could probably tell the visitor a remarkable story about the past of Cyprus. Unfortunately, this story isn't told due the lack...More
