Small but good local craft museum. Shows everyday artifacts and way of life of a bygone age. Also visit the Cathedral next door

Great location as is in the Archbishop's Palace yard and next to Saint John Cathedral, just in the centre of the old town of Nicosia.Is a small stone-built ,of 15th century, Museum, with great exchibitions of hundrets years ago, when Cyprus was completly different ! I liked it and surely recommend it, for those who are interested to have history knowledges about this small but interesting country.

The Folk Art Museum is situated within the Archibishop's building. I was not interested at the beginning to visit it but I decided to visit it and I was not dissapointed. It was a very interesting experience. The building was made out of stone and archs and it was really nice to be there. It includes 5-6 small rooms that cover what you expect from a folk art museum. We were really satisfied at the end and we overall enjoyed it. There was also a guide but unfortunately let's say that she was not an expert of the exhibitions.
I do not recommend to go to this area only for this museum, but if you are nearby, definitely it is a very good choice and you can estimate your visit at about 20-30 minutes. Outside the museum was a lady with traditional products and inside a small shop.

A great monument, one of the few still surviving in Nicosia. Interesting architecture, lovely, intetesting exhibitions.I went there on 18th of May and they had plenty of events to participate.I tasted a local sweet and I made my own pottery. You have to get a guided toor by the volunteers there!!!
