If you are interested in getting an in depth insight into Nicosia history, this is the place to be. It is one of the best city museums I have visited. It is small, compact and very well laid out and presented. It maintains your interest throughout. Quiet and free as well.

Well laid out over three floors with lifts. This little museum just of Ledra street contains interesting displays from ancient times through to the British Empire. The Bridal gown exhibit which was coming to an end was very good. Classic venetian through to modern dresses bit boring for some of the gents though. Well worth a look for a brief... More

The story of the city laid out on three floors.Though to me the most interesting was the British section on the top floor.I thought it tended to jump about a bit.So there wasn't a lot of information about the last few years of colonial rule.There is absolutely nothing about the division of the island.At least they could document it.

A lovely old building set in the Old Town of Nicosia, which houses a fantastic museum detailing the history of the city. There's a potted history on the bottom floor & then a chronological story as you make your way up through the floors. A different array of objects including archaeological finds, textiles, some wonderful maps, costumes & pottery. Being... More

This museum is about the history of Nicosia. Naturally it starts with pre history but then goes on to explain later phases, the Francs, Venicians, Turks and British. All exhibits are clearly marked in Greek and English. I found this explanation of how Cyprus developed under constantly changing rulers very interesting. As well as the main exhibition there is an...

This museum inaugurated in 1989 and honored with the European Museum of the Year Award in 1991; is a fascinating documentation of Nicosia History. The Museum includes several Galleries: - The Nicosia Gallery, with objects dating from the birth of the region and the ancient city (3900 BC-325 AD); - The Byzantine and Mediaeval Galleries (325-1489 AD) which have a...
