Paphos Archaeological Museum

Any European capital would be delighted to have ownership over the many treasures that fill this small but perfectly formed home to a collection of unearthed treasures dating back to the Neolithic Age. Pottery, wall friezes, stunning statues, glassware and even a set of ancient surgical instrument are displayed over five rooms. One of the rooms presents the Hellenistic and Roman periods, with a rare marble bust of Aphrodite and a marble statue of Asklepios. Such is the volume of exhibits unearthed over the years that the museum also has an ‘overflow’ collection in the garden areas.

This museum is well worth a visit to appreciate the beauty and skills of the ancients. The museum is part of the Aphrodite Cultural Route.
