“Loved this moment of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

The Folk Art museum captures what rural traditional life in Cyprus must have been like. The artifacts and exhibits take you back to a simpler time. I highly recommend this museum to be able to appreciate Cypriot culture as a whole.

“Don't miss visiting it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

Originally a Benedictine monastery that retains a number of 15th-century architectural features of the Frankish period.

A museum with a vast and rich collection of everyday items from a forgotten era. Traditional costumes, looms, pieces of furniture decorative baskets, clay pots, jewellery pieces and metal work, including the most intricate filigree work.

It certainly pays to visit it and for this reason I highly recommend it.

The Folk Art Museum is open for the public Monday to Friday from 09:30 to 16:00 and Saturdays from 09:00 to 13:00.

“Phyti ( Fyti ) Village Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

This is a wonderful traditional local museum owned and run by a husband and wife who have lived in the village all their lives. They make traditional Silk garments from silk worms to finished hand weaves . They have such a lot to tell about life in this lovely hillside village.
Entrance is free , but please leave a donation. The museum is recommended by the Cyprus Tourisum Organisation.
A lovely afternoon in this beautiful traditional Cypriot village , which has a couple of nice Tavernas and a pretty Church.

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.
