Folk Art Museum
A collection of traditional costumes, farm and household tools, tapestries, embroidery, wooden chests, jewellery and a variety of local handicrafts are among the displays at Limassol's Municipal Folk Art Museum, contained in a restored historic house. The Folk Art Museum has been awarded the Europa Nostra Award for its commitment to preserving Cyprus' cultural legacy and there are an impressive 500 exhibits in the house's six rooms. The collection spans the 19th and early 20th century. Authentic Cypriot handicrafts are also offered for sale. This is not a big museum but it is a charming one and the displays are interesting and atmospheric.
