Well, where to start, this museum is a magical place, absolutely stuffed full with interesting memorabilia, lace, artefacts and facts. This museum is such an intriguingly interesting place for you to be taken back in time to how life was for Cypriots many years ago! If you are lucky enough, you will meet the wonderful mukhtar Ηλίας, he has such incredible stories to tell and you will be enchanted by his recollection of how he collected all of the artefacts before opening his wonderful museum. Entrance is free but donations are very welcome!

This is a great little museum about the local village of Steni which really encapsulates what Cyprus used to look like. The history is fascinating. It would have been better if there was someone there to answer questions. Even a little video. The little kids played in the playground while the adults went around.

Great museum. Totally free and most signs in English. There did not seem to be anyone in charge but that did not matter. Great café opposite.

You would not go to Steni just to see the museum as it is small. That said the museum has some interesting exhibits and I certainly learnt things about the area I was not aware of. Given that Steni is a nice e little village with a couple of good taverna it is worth visiting and then perhaps following up with lunch

This is like someone's personal collection of memorabilia which gives it a personal touch. There are descriptions in English and plenty of background to each exhibit. When we went we had the place to ourselves

One man's collection from his village. Like stepping back in time. Everything from nails to beds, ploughs to lace. Very interesting & there is a great little taverna across the road.

The museum is beautifully located in the main road through Steni. It houses a large number of implements and household artifacts which are all numbered. There are books available explaining the corresponding numbers which make it easy to follow through the museum at your own pace.

It is surely not the dark and dusty picture that comes to ones mind when you hear the word museum.

It is well worth a visit.

This museum in the centre of Steni was a wonderful find. It is free to get in and you may get the Mayor as your guide. It is full of artefacts found from within the village itself and tell the history right back to the time of the Ottoman era. There are guides written in English which is a great help and every piece of display is numbered and they correspond with said guide. A wonderful place to spend a few hours, although be warned there is no air con and it gets hot. If you choose to go please put a donation in as this is what keeps this lovely place going. Also opposite the museum there is a lovely cafe for coffee.
