The building that hosts the museum used to be a Gothic monastery. Architecturally, the main highlight is a beautifully frescoed gothic arch. Inside though, are many items of modern Cypriotic arts and handcrafts. Most of these items were donated to or acquired by the museum from areas that are currently under the rule of Turkish troops. This includes:
- Wood carvings
- National costumes
- Folk art
Altogether there are about 5000 items. As the exhibits lack explanatory notes, some of them can be confusing. But that’s only part of their charm – have fun guessing what is what!
