The museum is located in the center of the old city and it spans 3 exhibition floors and it is in chronological order in a way that the first floor has prehistoric artefacts (both archeological and geological), the second floor has ancient, medieval and ottoman artefacts, and the top floor is reserved for the history of Cyprus after independence.

A very modern museum that shares the history of Nicosia (and Cyprus) through lots of artifacts and images. You can see it all less than an hour or spend over two hours if you read everything. What makes it even better is that it's free.

Good museum having fine examples of traditional Cypriot art on display. Entrance is free and it is a quite remarkable place. The only problem is that it is small and a visitor will not take more than 30 minutes to see everything.

Because of its location (you can walk in the old city), I would highly recommend this if you are in Nicosia. Do not come to Nicosia for this...

Visited the museum as part of an organised tour, well worth a visit to understand more about the history of the island and its people.

Beautiful building, artifacts and pictures of excellent quality. I went round the first time with a guide and saw all sorts of things I might have walked past otherwise [the stamp picturing a child and barbed wire that you have to buy to send a card or letter, money goes to refugees] I've been back twice [it's free] and thoroughly...

We had a day excursion to Nicosia - not enough time!! After about 14 pick ups from hotels, a coffee stop at the Donkey café at Skarinou, we arrived behind schedule in Nicosia. We were led to this museum where we spent some time - and given detailed explanation of the many artefacts in chronological order. These were set on... More

If you are in Nicosia it worth a visit. You can combine a visit to museum with a walk to Old city of Nicosia. Its location is perfect near Ledras street. A lot of exhibitions, all the history of Cyprus until the independence, with chronological order.

It is spotlessly clean, nicely laid out in a beautiful old building in the very heart of Old Nicosia's Ledra Street area, informative and covers Cyprus's long history very well...I just wish I found it before!

Definitely a must visit museum, that is actually housed in two mansions, so you also get to see where richer people use to live. It takes you through the history of Nicosia, and thus Cyprus, in a very inspiring way. The museum was renovated not long ago and has an interactive section for children. Entrance is free, so, as I...
