  • Very cheap admission fee. When we went there, there was an Aphrodite expedition which was very interesting. The expedition showcased depictions of Aphrodite all over the word, and the goddess's history. There are also many others art showcases such as the Invasion Of Cyprus, French Culture and Traditions etc. The facilities were clean and tidy and the staff were keen to help us.
  • A great collection. The art gallery has a Cypriot a Greek and a French collection, all very good. At times it also has periodic exchibitions. There is a cafe and a shop with the basics. It is a very pleasant visit. It's easy to go through the whole place at once but the entrance fee also allows you more visits. A must visit in Nicosia. At the moment the Paradox Aphrodite experience is excellent!
  • Interest collection. Mildly eccentric. Well wort a visit!!
  • This museum is superb, a definite must-see in Nicosia. The other museums can be a bit old-fashioned but this one is amazing! The building is beautifully lit and it's very clear where you have to go, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The collections are just perfect - not too much, and only the highlights. Great interpretive materials available. Also a tiny shop with some nice post-cards. Definitely go here!
  • You will about an hour to walk around all floors.
