  • Fascinating artifacts going back up to 11,000 years ago, excavated from ancient Amathous, not far from Limassol. The objects on display are mostly in remarkably good condition. They span different periods of Cyprus's history: prehistoric, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, ... . It takes about an hour to see the museum. Explanatory signs are in English and Greek. Admission costs 2.50€.

  • Being trere recently with a child and it was really nice to pass the knowledge

  • Un museo modesto , bonito y accesible , se visita en una hora , entrada 2,50€ . Si dispones de un rato visitarlo es apoyar a la conservación y mantener la cultura local .

  • Интересно и познавательно
