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.

This Museum is a two flour structure with a wide balcony on the top floor. Located within the historical neighborhood of Nicosia. It is also next to the Archbishop palace and the Byzantine Museum.

This is a fascinating place with an interesting collection. The building is interesting in itself, being the old Archbhishop's Residence and before that a Benedictine Monastery. The buildings nearby are important and not visited very much.
