Ethnographic Museum - Pafos (Paphos)

The Ethnographic Museum is a private museum that opened in 1958 and consists of the collection of the late George Eliades - an intellectual who had an interest in archaeology, history, folk art and literature, and collected art treasures from the countryside of Cyprus, and particularly the region of Pafos (Paphos).

Housed in an 1894 residence, the two-storey building is made of stone, with three unusual Gothic-style arches and beautiful gardens.

The exhibits include: costumes (particularly rural costumes and trimmings); traditional carved wooden furniture; Venetian mirrors; farming tools; kitchen utensils; clay artefacts; looms and woven articles, along with archaeological finds that date mainly from the Chalcolithic period and include coins, jewellery, amphorae and water jugs, amongst other items.

The museum can also hold civil and religious weddings in cooperation with the Anglican Church.
