Filled with archeological artefacts, statues and relics, but most impressive was the Cyprus Terracotta Army. It took us under an hour to stroll through the museum but we did enjoy the small equestrian antiquities.

One needs more than one day to see everything in detail. All most important artefacts once found during excavations are showed here. A marvel. Hundreds of statues of gods and godesses, terracota, vases... you name it. Surely the highpoint of your visit to Nicosia.

Museum may seem small, at the first sight, but it has a pretty big collection of ancient sculptures, household items, jewelry, and other items of different epochs. Definitely worth to visit!

At €4.50 this is well worth the entry fee. The British Museum may be free but this little museum is a far more manageable size and no less enthralling. And you won’t be left exhausted at the end. It is small and spectacular and very...More
