Folklore Museum Aradippou 'Kostas Kaimakliotis'
The Folklore Museum, an old mansion originally belonging to the Kostas Xatzikakou family, was built in 1901 and later on came in the possession of the Pavlos Konstantinides family. It was bought by the Kaimakliotis family and was donated to Aradippou Municipality in the memory of Kostas Kaimakliotis, with the purpose of becoming a folklore museum. On 3rd July 2007 the Folklore Museum of Aradippou was inaugurated.

The Museum was created with the aspiration of becoming a model centre for preserving, researching and promoting Cypriot Folklore Tradition.
