A different array of objects including archaeological finds, textiles, some wonderful maps, costumes & pottery. Being... More

This museum is about the history of Nicosia. Naturally it starts with pre history but then goes on to explain later phases, the Francs, Venicians, Turks and British. All exhibits are clearly marked in Greek and English. I found this explanation of how Cyprus developed under constantly changing rulers very interesting. As well as the main exhibition there is an...

This museum inaugurated in 1989 and honored with the European Museum of the Year Award in 1991; is a fascinating documentation of Nicosia History. The Museum includes several Galleries: - The Nicosia Gallery, with objects dating from the birth of the region and the ancient city (3900 BC-325 AD); - The Byzantine and Mediaeval Galleries (325-1489 AD) which have a...

A very modern museum that shares the history of Nicosia (and Cyprus) through lots of artifacts and images. You can see it all less than an hour or spend over two hours if you read everything. What makes it even better is that it's free.

Good museum having fine examples of traditional Cypriot art on display. Entrance is free and it is a quite remarkable place. The only problem is that it is small and a visitor will not take more than 30 minutes to see everything.
