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

We comfortably spent a couple of hours taking in the amazing history of Nicosia and Cyprus from 3000 BC right up to the British rule It... More

I never expected it to be so amazingly interesting. After the archeological museum - which is not to be missed - we headed for this jewel just off Ledra street which is in the heart and centre of this beautiful tidy city. The exhibitions are nicely laid out and present the history of Lefkosia.

Leventis Museum is a "tour" to Nicosia (and Cyprus) history from its birth thousands years ago until modern times. Going through the museum rooms one can realize how this town has grown. The people of Nicosia were occupied by many differents tribes and survived. And this museum shows evidence of its history. There you can see the first king Onasagoras... More
