The museum is now situated in Yeroskipou Square in a better building (it used to be a school) more suited to the objects on show. Yeroskipou is located a few kilometres to the East of Paphos and is itself very interesting with an Ethnographic museum...More

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

After some confusion on whether this museum was open or not, we discovered that the museum had moved to Geroskipou. The museum is now in a former school and the icons are very nicely exhibited in this white/blue building. Very charming lady at the entrance....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

The museum is in the Paphos bishop’s Palace and it is rather interesting for the ones who are fond of icons as very good ones can be contemplated in one of the two rooms of the museum. Most of paintings of this kind, which are...More
