We had a day excursion to Nicosia - not enough time!! After about 14 pick ups from hotels, a coffee stop at the Donkey café at Skarinou, we arrived behind schedule in Nicosia. We were led to this museum where we spent some time - and given detailed explanation of the many artefacts in chronological order. These were set on... More

If you are in Nicosia it worth a visit. You can combine a visit to museum with a walk to Old city of Nicosia. Its location is perfect near Ledras street. A lot of exhibitions, all the history of Cyprus until the independence, with chronological order.

It is spotlessly clean, nicely laid out in a beautiful old building in the very heart of Old Nicosia's Ledra Street area, informative and covers Cyprus's long history very well...I just wish I found it before!

Definitely a must visit museum, that is actually housed in two mansions, so you also get to see where richer people use to live. It takes you through the history of Nicosia, and thus Cyprus, in a very inspiring way. The museum was renovated not long ago and has an interactive section for children. Entrance is free, so, as I...

Definately visit! It takes from the very beginning of Cyprus to today with artifacts, maps and other objects. It teaches you about the country without leaving you exhausted from all the information. It's also free for the public.

This is a museum of the foudings, clothes and culture of Cyprus. A lot of things to see there, but always the same stuff. If you like museums, this can be a good stop, otherwise just go further. It isn't an active museum.

This is a decent museum about the history of Nicosia and is a great free attraction. Anything with the Leventis Foundation's name on it is usually good. Definitely worth a look, but just for a short while.

This museum has very well-designed exhibits explaining everything from the geological history of Cyprus to life in British Cyprus in the 1950s. Plus, there are often special exhibits. Currently, there is a large exhibit of some of the best of Cypriot lacework. The building is beautiful and historic (and worth seeing from the outside, even if the museum is not... More

A real gem right in the heart of Old Lefkosia. The area and narrow streets outside the museum are alive with history with the surrounding buildings oozing stories of days gone by. Once you step into the museum you feel as though you have an entered some sort of blissful oasis. The permanent exhibits are simply fascinating and help to... More
