Without fanfare this gives a glimpse of rural domestic life in Cyprus, with the accent on family, craftsmanship and clothing. Textiles and domestic furniture show why Cyprus is unique and like everywhere else at the same time. Excellent Gothic arch for close inspection. Worth an hour of your time

Worth a visit, good design and plenty of information, not particularly large museum. Visit lasted around 30-45 minutes

Went to visit this museum after visiting the Byzantine Museum. The entry fee of Euro 2 and one cannot take photos. One can see how people lived. See how they weaved, some blacksmith tools, etc. Saw some clothes and a large bed. Family must have been well off to afford such luxury in those times. One can also buy few... More

the folk art museum, housed in what used to be an old monastery so you can still see icons painted on the walls, is a little gem, not greatly known.

Lefkosia has many small museums in comparison with other bigger cities but all of them are well kept and the folk art museum is one of the better ones to visit. Easily accessible and the exhibits are well presented, very interesting and of high traditional heritage and value. Small fee to enter.

Manage your expectations and its fine, interesting little museum to fill half a hour. The byzantine art museum next door is also worth a visit.
