We saw this on TripAdvisor and as we were up in the old town, thought we would have a look. It has spears and medical instruments as well as tiny glass things and figurines. I loved it. The road closures can make access tricky but we just circled around and got there in the end. So worth it!

This museum is one of the best in the area. You can see a lot of exhibitions and learn a lot of things about the ancient greek-cypriot civilization.

The Archaeological museum it is on the road which goes to the airport. Also it is not open at the weekends which may partly explain why most locals don't seem to know where it is. However the pieces are numerous and well displayed, particularly if you are interested in the Chalcolithic (3500 - 2500BC) and Bronze Age (2500-1000 BC) which... More

Had a lot of difficulties to find the archeological museum. The byzantin museum and the etnological museum are indicated, however for the archeological museum, we found only one indication, when you arrived in front of the museum. Collection is small but interesting, of course if you are interested in history.

We stopped here on the last day of our holiday as we spotted the sign, and I'm glad we did. We had been to a few other attractions but this had the best exhibits. From the baths to the tomb, it was well displayed and well looked after. The small charge is worth it, so I would recommend it to... More

As others have noted this place is slightly away from the center. As of our visit Paphos is torn up with road works and is a right mess. The walk to this museum is interesting because it's one of the best neighborhoods in town, in part because the road is one block from the cliff that defines the upper parts... More
