  • Interesting museum and engrossing exposition. I was flying away to the island’s past. Especially I appreciated retro outdoor advertising posters somewhere between 2 and 3 floor and retro clothes for home, sleeping etc. Mostly women clothes I saw there was XS or XXS size and I felt myself very fat! Maybe because previous times they were smoking Cyprus cigarettes. But it’s not exactly!
  • Nice building with good toilets. Just nothing very interesting inside. Random pictures from visiting artists with little backstory. I think 5euros was a bit steep. At least it was warm in there.
