  • The Cyprus museum offers such a nice variety of Cypriot treasures and history. Some of them quite ancient.  more »
  • A good collection of ancient artifacts. Visitors would benefit from a greater amount of information about the collection.  more »

  • It gives an inclusive overview about Cyprus history. Many beautiful sculptures and artifacts. Best place to visit in heat of summer afternoons. I visited this museum since I had couple of hours until my flight. Learning something new is always better than just wasting time in airport.
  • Nice collection of local artifacts. Definably could use some more signage and information. Fairly cheap. Allot at least an hour and not more than 3 or 4. 15 minute walk from the northern Cyprus border.
