  • Another very good value museum. So much interesting pottery and well laid out in chronological order. Some really cool Egyptian stuff that was totally unexpected.

  • A rather small and dated museum, with little facilities. Needs an upgrade in infrastructure. However, it houses some very interesting archaeological artefacts from different eras, going back thousands of years.

  • 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.
