Small compared to other national museums but well designed interior with great collections spanning the ancient history of Cyprus. Nice small garden and a coffee shop outside. Enjoyed a cup of coffee while sitting in the garden next to old sculptures.

We've travelled a lot around the world with our two young sons. The little "explorer's box" that this museum put together for their youngest visitors is pure genius! We all enjoyed our time here.
