This was an insight into a different culture. Some amazing icons and other items from the bishop's palace. But really only a place to go if you are interested. The use of a former school is good and there is patrking behind. It was very...More

If you are in the Ktima area, this museum is worth a visit if you are interested in ecclesiastical vestments, vessels, copies of scripture and a collection of impressive icons. One of these is a 9th century representation of Aga Marina, thought to be the...More

The first thing to highlight is that the museum has moved to Geroskipou (in April 2017), about 3/4 miles away. Thanks to a previous reviewer for pointing this out. The collection of icons is well-presented, with captions in English, and the curator was welcoming and...More

A small museum with a wonderful collection of Icons painted on wood plus some other items worth seeing. A bit hard to find as its on the Hill and not in the harbour area.

Although quite small, and able to see in a couple of hours, the icons on display are amazing. So beautiful and real antiques. I spent a lovely time here, feel that others would benefit by the experience.

This is a smallish museum of objects from churches in the Paphos district consisting mainly of Byzantine icons. The museum is in some need of repair - there is damp evident on some of the inside walls - but it's very interesting. There are other...More
