Paphos Ethnographic Museum

The Paphos Ethnographic Museum (also known as the Ethnographical Museum of Georgios Eliades and the Cultural Heritage Museum of Cyprus) is located in the city of Paphos, within the Paphos district of Cyprus.



This privately-owned museum opened in 1958, and it's situated within a house that was originally built of stone in 1894.

There are two main floors in the museum.  The top floor, which is located on the street level, consists of three rooms with various household items on display, including an ancient Cypriot coin collection.

The ground floor, which is located beneath the house, provides various examples of life in Cyprus from the past, particularly the 19th and 20th centuries.  Some of items on display include ceramics, traditional clothing, furniture, tools, olive press, etc.  Within the museum's courtyard, there's an ancient tomb and chapel from the 4th century AD.
