It is not a big museum, but the building has an interesting collection of pottery, greek and helenistic pieces, jewels and some well distributed and presented aspects of ancient life of the island. The roman funeral stones and burial sites are also a must.

An extensive presentation of the history of Cyprus and their contact with other nations. But it is such a pity to see it so neglected. Old scripts, barely readable, filthy displays with bad lightings, where so important pieces of the country's history are just lost....More
