Paphos Archaeological Museum

The Paphos District Archaeological Museum is located in the city of Paphos, within the Paphos district of Cyprus.
 


This museum was started in 1964, and it's connected with Cyprus' Aphrodite Cultural Route.

The Paphos District Archaeological Museum has five main exhibition rooms that progress chronologically, from 8000 BC until the end of the Venetian rule in the 1570s.  Most of the ancient artifacts were discovered in the ancient areas of Palaipafos (Kouklia), Nea Pafos (Paphos), and Marion-Arsinoe (Polis), as well as the Akourdalia, Geroskipou, Kidasi, Kisonerga, Lempa, Pano Arodes, Pegeia, Pomos, and Salamiou.

The first exhibition room primarily focuses on the Chalcolithic sites of Lempa and Kissonerga, as well as the Bronze Age.

The second exhibition room features items from the Archaic and Classical periods, particularly Palaipafos, Marion, Nea Pafos, and other sites throughout the Paphos district.

The third exhibition room focuses on the Hellenistic and Roman periods, including ancient artifacts from Nea Pafos.

The fourth exhibition room primarily features excavations from the House of Dionysos in Kato Pafos, particularly during the Roman and Early Christian periods.

The fifth exhibition room focuses on the Frankish and Venetian periods, especially ancient artifacts from Saranta Kolones and Chrysopolitissa in Kato Pafos.

The museum's courtyard displays more more ancient items from throughout the Paphos district.
