The Cyprus Museum (also known as the Cyprus Archaeological Museum) is the oldest and largest archaeological museum in Cyprus.

The museum houses artifacts discovered during numerous excavations on the island. The museum is home to the most extensive collection of Cypriot antiquities in the world and is located on Museum Street in central Nicosia. Its history goes hand in hand with the course of modern archaeology (and the Department of Antiquities) in Cyprus. Of note is that only artefacts discovered on the island are displayed.

  • Surprisingly I really enjoyed this museum it’s set out through time starting in the Neolithic and as you walk through you can clearly see the influence of cultural contact. And influence on Cyprus...

  • 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.
