Ethnographical Museum

Although the name sounds rather formal and stuffy, this family run museum is not at all stuffy, it’s not just a collection of objects it’s really about the culture that produced them, and the human stories attached to them, for this is a living place. It’s also home to the family who run the museum, it’s their passion and is shown in the veritable treasure trove of visual and tactile delights to be found here. Entire rooms are in situ as living examples of different periods of Cyprus history, a kitchen, a bedroom, a store room for hundreds of old tools even a barbers shop. Handmade jewellery, embroidery, weaving, carved dowry chests, and a massive coin collection all contribute to this marvelous and slightly eclectic living portfolio of treasures. Operating hours: Monday - Saturday: 10:00 - 17:30, Sunday: 10:00 - 13:00. Operating period: all year round. Entrance fee: € 3.
