Visit to the Cyprus Museum is a must if you want to learn about the history of Cyprus. They have pots and utensils from different time periods along with sculptures. I spent about 1.5 hours. Time well spent.

Interesting displayed and exhibitions. A wide array of antiques from across the whole island. The antiques are in very good condition and are well kept and looked after. This museum takes you back in time.

Beautiful morning at the Cyprus Museum! An extensive collection of history with the most amazing collection of terracotta figurines found in the Sanctuary of Ayia Irini! That was my highlight! Everyone should visit and contribute!

Relatively small museum that will take you about an hour to see, longer if you stop to read each plaque. The objects found at the archaeological sites on Cyprus are on display here (those that weren't taken to England or smuggled abroad). Some lovely examples...More
