Archaeological Museum of the Larnaka (Larnaca) District

 

The Museum is closed to the public until the end of June 2019, due to renovation works.

Larnaka (Larnaca) District Archaeological Museum houses a large collection of archaeological finds from the whole district of Larnaka, including the ancient city-kingdom of Kition, and the main Neolithic settlements of Choirokitia and Tenta - Kalavasos.

Exhibits include artefacts from the Neolithic period, the Copper Era and the Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods. Faience (tin-glazed pottery), ivory and alabaster pieces showcase Cyprus’ commercial and international ties with different countries during antiquity.

Aside from the large collection of local exhibits, the museum also displays some unique items of Egyptian, Mycenaean, Phoenician, Assyrian and Persian origin that were found in the region of Larnaka, but may have been imported from the other great civilizations of antiquity close to the island.

The museum is linked with the Aphrodite Cultural Route.
