A small but comprehensive museum that covers the complete timeline of the history of Cyprus. A diverse museum with artefacts, clothing, antiquities, stories... one that makes the visit very educational and rewarding. A must visit to understnd the journey of Cyprus in History.

Well-presented history of the island - pre-history, Ottomans, Venetians, British, Turks.. told through pictures, ceramics, clothes paintings, crafts, artefacts and photos. A must see museum in the most interesting bit of town.

One hour in the Leventis Museum is the perfect introduction to the old city as you start your walking tour. I had no idea the many layers of history and empire in Cyprus, including a British royal wedding 1,000 years ago. Good use of technology, household items, music, and a scavenger hunt for kids.

Careful design and excellent interpretation make the 9000 years of human occupation of Cyprus come alive. There are also several personal collections lent to this museum. We spent at least a couple of hours here. Shop has a great book collection as well. It's free but you should leave a donation, it's really good. The Old City is small so it's easy to get to this museum on foot from anywhere inside the walls.

I was on a somewhat disappointing tour of Nicosia when our guide recommended this little museum in a side street on the Greek side and it made the day! It's small for a city museum and apparently most of the exhibits come from private Cypriot collections. This means that the exhibits aren't grand or even particularly valuable but that makes them the more charming. The relatively large collection of ceramics are incredibly lovely - bowls and dishes from the 14th and 15thC which look as fresh and modern as if they'd been made in the last twenty years. There are little domestic items which reflect the island's history of occupation by various empires, from the British back to 5000AD. Some, like the 15thC Venetian silver spoon - would be lost in larger collections and are given their full value here.
It's a lovely way to spend an hour or more and in a pleasant area with charming cafes. If it weren't for the unsmiling and suspicious-looking staff, it would be perfect.

I walked past this building several times in the past 24 hours without realising what it was. Shutters all closed and looks to be a private house until you push open the door. Interesting museum and a welcome escape from the tourist area of Ledra Street. Free entrance but deserted when I visited. Closed on Mondays.

A fascinating medium sized museum in the centre of the old city. Very well set out and organised. A very good potted history of Nicosia with lots of artifacts to view - be sure to obtain a map from the reception desk.

Very friendly reception and security staff.

Clean loos.

This is a very good museum, not too large, not too small, and we enjoyed our visit. We asked for maps of the museum layout from the desk by the entrance, which were freely given. Displays are mostly on Floor 1, some on Floor 2 including the exhibition which changes but which was costume when we visited. There is a lift.

There are a few tables and chairs on the ground floor where you can catch a quick sit-down. Toilets are downstairs. Exhibits include many different types, such as pottery, jewellery and statues from different periods - Cyprus through the ages.

Great value for money as entrance is free! There is a donation box by the entrance/exit. Open Tuesdays to Sundays 10am to 4.30pm. Photography is allowed without flash.

Although the museum is not bad, there needs to be some training done to the staff there - namely the security company, Group 4.
HOW THE HELL can they expect a NINE year old to know that where there is a no flash photography sign, as there is throughout the museum, in one room this means no photography?
Add to this the arrogant female security guard shouting at my son then this made it a terrible visit.
Never again as they have NO IDEA how to treat visitors.

The museum is located just off Ledra street and has free admission. If you have an hour or so to spare and would like to know more about the history of Cyprus then it's worth a visit.

It looks like a house from the outside so unless you'
