I was on a somewhat disappointing tour of Nicosia when our guide recommended this little museum in a side street on the Greek side and it made the day! It's small for a city museum and apparently most of the exhibits come from private Cypriot...More

Perfect for if you want a quick visit with many interesting things to see. We spent about 45 mins here but could’ve easily spent a bit longer if we didn’t have a little one in tow. She was happily looking at things with us too...More

I walked past this building several times in the past 24 hours without realising what it was. Shutters all closed and looks to be a private house until you push open the door. Interesting museum and a welcome escape from the tourist area of Ledra...More

This was our favourite museum in Nicosia as it had a more modern feel to it. Something for everyone with plenty of displays and sufficient information. Entry is free and the air conditioning was lovely and cool.

While the Cyprus Museum may have a better collection of ancient artifacts, this museum is excellent at putting things into historical context with just enough artifacts to illustrate the story. While the focus is on Nicosia, much of the entire island history is covered.
