Overview

An extension of Limassol’s magnificent famed archaeological site at one of the island’s seven ancient kingdoms, Kourion Archaeological Museum offers a splendid collection for anyone looking to delve into the kingdom’s past glory.

Housed in the home of the late George McFadden, who was the Assistant Director of the University of Pennsylvania and led archaeological research at the site, the museum consists of two exhibition halls, showcasing fins from the Early Bronze Age.

The first hall displays the various phases of Kourio’s history and the second hall includes findings from the Sanctuary of Apollo Hylates.

The remains of inhabitants of the city’s ancient residents, who lost their lives in the 4th century earthquakes, constitute one of the most impressive exhibits of the museum, and were found in a home on the site.

Operating all year round (expect on public holidays) for an entrance fee of €2.50. Opening and closing times as well as entrance fees, may alter so it is advisable to check before visiting.
