The building itself was restored by the municipality from 2002 – 2011, and in cooperation with the island’s Press and Information Office, provides a place where scientists, researchers, journalists, university students and the general public can access digitised archives on Limassol.
Visitors can view a number of document, photographs, videos, newspaper and magazine clippings, furniture, ornaments, artefacts, and clothing.
The museum’s open all year round, except on public holidays, though it is advisable to check opening and closing times as they may alter.
