It is a well-known fact that the island of Cyprus carries long and rich cultural history dating as far back as the Mythological Greek Gods such as the goddess Aphrodite and god Apollo right through to Medieval and Byzantine times. Therefore, all you history buffs out there must definitely visit some of the many museums in Limassol when on holiday and gain insight on the city’s inspiring history.
The Folk Art Museum, a true inspiration to every visitor, was founded in 1985 and is the ideal location to gain insight into Cypriot folk art of the previous two centuries. The museum is made up of six rooms and exhibits approximately 500 artefacts, including handmade embroidery, tapestry, clothing, jewellery, tools and traditional costumes. It is important to note that the museum was awarded the Europa Nostra Award due to its exceptional representation of the Cypriot heritage back in 1989.
Founded in 1948, the Archaeological Museum of Limassol is without a doubt, the most visited museum in the city, exhibiting artefacts as far back as the Neolithic Age to the Roman Period. The three rooms of the museum exhibit hundreds of artefacts that project the rich history of Cyprus. The first room presents tools and pottery found at Amathus and Kourion, dating back to 3000 B.C. till 1300 A.D. while the second room displays sculptures and jewellery that originate from 1700 B.C. The last room exhibits artefacts and findings, mostly excavated from the Amathus archaeological site, like the inspiring statue of Artemis.
The Wine Museum is one of the most visited and interesting museums in Cyprus since the island has a history of over 5000 years of producing quality wine. Cyprus is recognised as one of the primal wine producing countries and has even preserved its own winemaking process. The oldest wine produced on the island is Koumandaria, a sweet red wine.
The Museum of Olive Oil is tucked away in rural Limassol, within the village of Anogyra on the peak of a hill. There, visitors can learn about the history of olive oil and observe how it is made. High-quality virgin olive oil and other products made using olive oil are available for purchase at the museums’ in-house gift shop.
The Natural History Museum of Limassol is found at the Limassol Zoo. It is an extremely interesting and educational centre, which displays stuffed animals, birds and reptiles. The centre also presents films concerning wildlife and nature. The Natural History Museum is especially popular amongst families that make a day out of visiting the zoo and the museum.
