Excellent small museum in the centre of Paphos. The owner's late husband, a local archeaologist, set up the museum in their home and there are many various and fascinating items on display.

What a fabulous place. We were greeted by the owner (how often can you say that about a Museum) Chryso, who together with her husband George, created this wondrous place. Chryso is not only a guide, but an inspiration; if only I had a 100th of her verve and passion... she warmly welcome us (Scotsman and Irish woman) into her... More

We got married here and it was just perfect. So rustic and intimate. There were 80 of us, so it was a bit of a squeeze, but it worked fine. Some of the men stood throughout the ceremony. This was definitely a real hidden treasure and the owner made it look beautiful. If you want something different, this is it.... More

Do not miss this family run place. The old lady who owns it is there and she is a gem. Not cheap to get in, but worth it to see how life used to be

Found this almost by chance. An old house, still owned by the family who lived in it and full of artefacts from throughout the ages. A great place to spend an hour.

My friend and I walked a long way to visit the museum. Unfortunately it was closed, presumably due to renovations to the city. However, there did not seem to be renovations of the museum itself.

A look back in time to the style of living, production, farming etc. and the implements of various eras. Well worth a visit.

For our thirtieth wedding anniversary we wanted to renew our wedding vows in Cyprus. We wanted a private venue with a historical Cypriot setting. The museum was the perfect place for the ceremony. The museum is closed to the public for the duration and every one is free to look around afterwards. The manager, Fryne made us feel very welcome... More

Oddball collection of fascinating stuff, looks random at first, but read the book and the collection becomes clear. Lovely lady in charge and who wouldn't want a 2nd century BC tomb in their garden???
