Inexpensive, packed with very old artefacts and when accompanied by sons who know Greek mythology it makes you wonder at older civilisation and how much they achieved. Recommended as a distraction either on a poor weather day or as an escape for an hour.

We visited the museum and site at Kouklia today and were amazed at how far back the history goes. There have been settlements there from as far back as 4,500 BC. We did read up about the site before we went, on the internet, as...More
