Popped in here to fill time as there is no charge (optional donation box). The exhibits are all labelled and a small booklet explains what everything is. Good examples of the traditional village equipment, clothing and even windows! The highlight for us was the silkworms doing their thing.

Very interesting and well laid out displays. Met with a very warm welcome and guided tour. Highly recommended. Very clean village. Congratulations to the village Mayor on creating this Museum. Also enjoyed the Water Mill restaurant opposite the Museum, with great food, service and very good prices.

We hired a car and drove well a 1000 kilometers over the course of 5 days. Anyway we came across this little gem in the middle of nowhere. As the title shows it has lots of old village life articles which were fascinating. Afterwards we went over to the little cafe opposite and had a really nice snack.

Very informative. Well presented. Not a very large museum child friendly. Bathrooms are clean and a meal at the restaurant across the road is highly recommended.

This museum has all sorts of pieces from past rural life in Cyprus, jam packed with info. The first day we went the lady curator was so helpful & informative about all the memorobelia. On our second visit over the winter months the museum was closed but a note with a phone number was on the door, when we phoned,... More
