Very interesting exposition, well maintained. I only regret it wasn't bigger. Absolutely worth seeing. Especially that it's a great starting point to continue sightseeing, many other facilities are really close in a stroll distance.

This museum houses a plethora of old furniture, costumes and equipment for making handicrafts sourced over the years from around the island. Essentially one long room with a few smaller rooms, it doesn’t take too long to view the items on show.

Located near the Archbishop's Palace and the National Struggle Museum, this is a wonderful museum for those interested in the folk art of Cyprus. Plan to spend at least an hour here. Byzantine art museum located next door.

A well curated collection well laid out over several floors. Covers art works as well as artefacts and several areas have hidden items in drawers In house cafeteria available and a small gift shop. A calm oasis in a hot climate.

Lovely to look around and see some of the preserved methods of Cypriot arts and crafts- important to keep these traditions alve for future generations
