Cyprus Museum Jan 03, 2009
In an older building just outside the old city in Lefkosia is the Cyprus Museum. It is supposedly the best museum in all of Cyprus covering the ancient history of Cyprus. In the vast exhibition are some artifacts from all the different ancient sights around Cyprus. When you actually go around the island you are likely to see some picture of the artifacts in the museum because there are no artifacts at the archeological they are all abroad or at the Cyprus Museum.
The museum is covering all of the old history of Cyprus from the Neolithic days with a few exhibits from 10.000 years BC then the museum is quickly moving forward to the later day with Hellenistic arts in the form of several amphora’s and other pottery from the time of the Greeks. The exhibitions stop with the Roman era hence the modern times is not covered at this museum and for those wanting to know more about the days of the Crusaders, Venetians or Ottomans there is not a lot to come for.
