This is a nice effort from a family to keep alive traditional lifestyle and show it in a nice way. Owner explained lots of interesting things. Two euro fee adults and one for children. It's ok.

What really makes this museum is the enthusiasm of the owner. We were the only visitors and he gave us a guided tour and answered all our questions. He even took us around his orchard/garden behind the museum and let the children pick some fruit.

We had a great trip round, plenty of rooms set out to show the old ways of life in Cyprus and some of the history and the honey making process. Nice family run business

The Bee and Embroidery Museum at Kato Drys is an authentic and charming little piece of Cyprus. The entry is a ridiculous 2 Euros per head. Ellie, the owner and guide, does an amazing job at guiding you through the many museum parts. We found...More

In a relatively small but beautiful area, one can be informed on three aspects of cypriot village life of the past: a) a beautiful neoclassic house of the previous century with its original furniture, items and embroidery, b) old farming and household equipment, c) beekeeping...More
