Kourion Archaeological Museum

The Kourion Archaeological Museum is located in Episkopi Village, which is about 20 km west of the city of Limassol, within the Limassol district of Cyprus.



The museum is situated within the private house of the late George McFadden, who led the archaeological research regarding ancient Kourion from 1934 until 1953.  The building was built in 1937, and it was later renovated into a museum after it was gifted to the Cypriot Department of Antiquities, which opened the Kourion Archaeological Museum on December 15, 1969.  

Within this archaeological museum, there are two main exhibition halls with ancient artifacts primarily from the Kourion Archaeological Site, as well as the surrounding area. 



The Kourion Archaeological Museum is a rather small museum, yet it's worth visiting, particularly those planning to visit the Kourion Archaeological Site.
