  • It a time. to see and a time.to be. I invite. you to see. these icons!
  • It is ok if you have extra time to kill in Nicosia
  • The collections in this museum are WONDERFUL. There are so many beautiful icons! The best parts are the reconstructed dome-mosaics and frescoes though, absolutely stunning. Also impressive displays on how these were stolen/illegally trafficked from the northern part of Cyprus. However - the museum itself is a bit old-fashioned. Interpretation options are not great and it is unclear where to go/what parts to see, etc.
  • Excellent collection of Byzantine art and artefacts. Exceptional, especially if you have visited some of the UNESCO Byzantine churches found in Cyprus where some of the exhibits were coming from.
  • Wonderful icons exhibited.
