This is an excellent little museum and is easily missed. There is not an entrance fee but they ask for a donation to help to keep it open. We had set out to find another museum in Polis and passed this on our way back. We were able to explore the artefacts which date from 19th and early 20th centuries.... More

Good collection relating to the area's past. Very well presented. A must if you are on holiday to see how the area has changed.

At first glance you think that this is a small inconsequential village collection but take time to look and read the information and you will step back in time to see the old Cyprus. Donations no entrance fee help keep the museum created by the lovely village mayor going.

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 museum that relies only on a donation it is well worth taking a trip to... 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.

I was having a meal at the 'Well' opposite this building with a friend and she happened to be here when the Muktah was assembling the museum. I was quite taken back to my very early days and also to country farms in the UK. I was amazed to see many tools that I or my dad had used. It... More

The best of its kind in Cyprus! The labour of love of the mayor of Steni who established the museum and collected all the artefacts, helped by the villagers, as a history for younger generations and visitors. We were privileged to meet mr Ilias and he gave us a guided tour. We compared our childhood experiences of similar era and... More

Were recommended to visit this little museum. It contains many interesting artefacts of traditional Cyprus life. Free entrance you just make a donation in the big urn.
