We visited this museum after reading all the great reviews on TripAdvisor. An amazing eclectic collection of items... doors, windows, kitchenware, farming and more. It is well worth a visit.

Great little museum showing how people used to live and work. Lots of interesting objects and items to look at and wonder how they used to do things and how long it must have took them. Well worth a visit.

Such a beautiful rural museum with displays showing how life used to be. A delight for all ages. The village of Steni itself is so attractive and well kept. A credit to the MUkta of the village whose brain child it was.

Well worth a trip if you are interested in Cypriot social history. The implements on show were very interesting with the displays well grouped. The display of photographs from a 19th century book of the people in Cyprus and the narratives were facinating. For a...More

What a lovely museum created by the local community using local artefacts and memories. It's a gem - so much to see and a really good index of items for when there is nobody there to show you around.
