This Museum is relatively small and nicely kept . It includes exhibitions on traditional professions, clothes, handicrafts and artifacts relating the history of Cyprus. It also has very nice rooms with original furniture and paintings. I enjoyed it.

Very interesting exposition, well maintained. I only regret it wasn't bigger. Absolutely worth seeing. Especially that it's a great starting point to continue sightseeing, many other facilities are really close in a stroll distance.

This museum houses a plethora of old furniture, costumes and equipment for making handicrafts sourced over the years from around the island. Essentially one long room with a few smaller rooms, it doesn’t take too long to view the items on show.

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.
