The museum is in a medieval building of 14th cent so no a/c can be installed. Usually is not hot. It keeps a normal temperature and it gives a good opportunity to visitor to experience how a monastery of 14th century in Cyprus was. Thank...More

It is inside a church like building. If you have ever been to a similar a Greek museum, you don't have to go unless you want to do a comparison. No photo is allowed in this place.

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.

Lovely to look around and see some of the preserved methods of Cypriot arts and crafts- important to keep these traditions alve for future generations

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.
