If you're at all interested in Cypriot antiquities, this museum is not optional. However, you should be forewarned that not all of the labels go with the right items, and many that are the correct ones are placed at a distance from the objects that they describe. Probably the best rooms in the museum are often missed because they are... More

Great place to visit with lots to see and to understand Cyprus history. Not the biggest museum but perfectly formed with a great layout.

This is a stunning museum, not too large, very well laid-out and full of most impressive artefacts. Compares favourably with the very best elsewhere. Well-preserved exhibits such as I have not seen elsewhere in a cleverly laid-out environment.

Not very far on quality when compared to the Athens counterpart. For me, the best Nicosia attraction if you love ancient civilizations history.

We've travelled a lot around the world with our two young sons. The little "explorer's box" that this museum put together for their youngest visitors is pure genius! We all enjoyed our time here.

Whilst this museum may be fairly modest in size it has some wonderful exhibits. Entry is 4.50 euros and children go free. There are some very interesting items from prehistoric times to Byzantine Cyprus with many statues from the Hellenic and Roman period. The 2000 figures unearthed are pretty unique I would say and the bronze of Septimus Severus is... More

We were on an organised trip to the area and brought in here. Interesting look at the history of Cyprus if you like that sort of thing. Pretty well laid out museum and plenty of artifacts to see. Difficult to be ushered around with fifty other people so may have missed hearing about some of the significant facts. Worth a... More

Very rich museum, memorable logic of the galleries placement, according to historic timeline, separate displays for the history of theater, etc.
