A look onto real Cypriot peoples past. A compact museum that showcase arts & crafts displays in rather dark surroundings but that's traditional layout. It's 5 00 euros entrance is expensive by cyprus prices but as its self funded(no government money) and run by volunteers. Go & pay to support traditional items from dissapearing

It’s located next to the St. John’s Cathedral. We wanted to visit this museum, but it was Saturday afternoon, so it was closed. We couldn’t see traditional costumes, lace, woodcarvings and paintings. But we could sit down outside near an old pottery and a village cart or chariot.

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 souvenirs.

Okay for a short visit.

A glimpse into village life, nicely laid out in a historic building. Doesn't take long to see and you learn a lot

The Folk Art museum captures what rural traditional life in Cyprus must have been like. The artifacts and exhibits take you back to a simpler time. I highly recommend this museum to be able to appreciate Cypriot culture as a whole.

This is a wonderful traditional local museum owned and run by a husband and wife who have lived in the village all their lives. They make traditional Silk garments from silk worms to finished hand weaves . They have such a lot to tell about life in this lovely hillside village.
Entrance is free , but please leave a donation. The museum is recommended by the Cyprus Tourisum Organisation.
A lovely afternoon in this beautiful traditional Cypriot village , which has a couple of nice Tavernas and a pretty Church.

This is a fascinating place with an interesting collection. The building is interesting in itself, being the old Archbhishop's Residence and before that a Benedictine Monastery. The buildings nearby are important and not visited very much.

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
