It gives an inclusive overview about Cyprus history. Many beautiful sculptures and artifacts. Best place to visit in heat of summer afternoons. I visited this museum since I had couple of hours until my flight. Learning something new is always better than just wasting time in airport.
Nice collection of local artifacts. Definably could use some more signage and information. Fairly cheap. Allot at least an hour and not more than 3 or 4. 15 minute walk from the northern Cyprus border.
