Ethnographic Museum of Paphos Ethnographic Museum
A private ethnographic museum owned by the Eliadis family, which until 1971 was known as the Museum of Folk Art and, perhaps, was one of the best private museums on the island. The museum displays the collection of George Eliadis, an intellectual interested in archeology, history, folk art and literature. For more than half a century he has been collecting cultural treasures in the Cypriot countryside, predominantly in his native region of Paphos.
The exhibits of the museum are created not only by human hands, but also by nature. These are natural caves, a grave of the Hellenistic period carved into the rock, a turpentine tree, architectural objects dating back to 1894, as well as a kiosk, which were included in the collection of the ethnographic museum.
Among the exhibits of the museum are costumes, mainly rural costumes and lace products, traditional wooden carved furniture, tools, kitchen utensils, clay items, weaving and woolen clothes, as well as archaeological finds of the Copper Stone Age.
