  • The museum is quite small but cost very little in our opinion and worth the price. The collection is quite old, most of the objects are pottery and statues.  more »
  • There are a few artifacts in this museum, but not many. When I visited there was a contemporary exhibition on, which I wouldn't have chosen to see had I known beforehand.  more »
  • The Museum is worthy of close attention. Its collection spans several millennia the history of Cyprus. Exhibits from the bronze age, ancient Rome, the middle ages are exhibited in chronological order. Ceramics, mosaics, jewelry, weapons, furniture. Remember the unusual clay figurines times Greek colonization of the island and a very interesting collection of old maps of the Mediterranean.

  • A small archaeological museum. Not one to go out of one's way to visit but if you are on the area it's worth a visit. I enjoyed my visit.
  • A decent collection, nothing to sweep you off your feet.
  • Great museum, highly recommended
  • Nice museum. Quick presentation of the history of Larnaka and Cyprus. Takes around 20 mins start to finish. There is nothing here that blows your mind.
  • Small and quiet museum with the essence of the Helenistic and local history packed into 5 rooms. The entrance fee is 3€. There is also a small shop with pottery and cards. Highly recommended.

Where to stay in Larnaka City

A small city, Larnaka's activity and accommodations center around its palm tree-lined seafront. Hotels and apartments on or near the busy main promenade provide easy access to the beach and the area's most popular restaurants; however, this convenience often comes with an increased price tag. Budget-conscious visitors should look for a room on the outskirts, where most of the city's main attractions will still be within walking distance (generally involving a pleasant stroll along the beach), although popping back to your room for forgotten beach supplies will not be as easy.
