This is a small museum in a part of Cyprus known for its natural beauty. The Natural History section of the museum has stuffed specimens of the great variety of birds found on the island. A small archeological collection is on the second level.

OK, I love ancient history, so I've given this five stars, because you can trace the continuity of Cypriot culture over thousands of years all the way to the classical era. There are only a few rooms, but if you want to see eteocypriot, mycenean...More
