Directions to Bee & Embroidery Museum
The Bee & Embroidery Museum is located in the village of Kato Drys, Larnaka district in an old 300-year-old house.
This comprehensive museum gives you the opportunity to learn more about the Cypriot culture and the good old way of life.
The owners, in addition to teaching you everything about bees and beekeeping, will also show you how wine and Zivania are made during the grape harvest season. The museum exhibits over 1000 items including old farming and household equipment and furniture.
Additionally, in a neoclassic house (built in 1937), the visitor can see a rich collection of traditional lace and embroidery (Lefkaritika) dating back to 1880.
There are even some old souvenirs the owner's grandfather brought back from his trips to the UK to sell his lace, including collector's items from the coronations of King George and Queen Elizabeth.
