This is a nice effort from a family to keep alive traditional lifestyle and show it in a nice way. Owner explained lots of interesting things. Two euro fee adults and one for children. It's ok.

What really makes this museum is the enthusiasm of the owner. We were the only visitors and he gave us a guided tour and answered all our questions. He even took us around his orchard/garden behind the museum and let the children pick some fruit.

We had a great trip round, plenty of rooms set out to show the old ways of life in Cyprus and some of the history and the honey making process. Nice family run business

Frankly the visit to this museum was the most impressive out of all 4 days Cyprus tour. The tour by the owner was so personal, so natural, and so insightful! I am not into bees or embroidery, but her account of Cyprus history was so...More
