Directions to Folk Art Museum - Deryneia
The Folk Art Museum in Deryneia is housed in an old traditional house donated by Mr. Varnavas and Mrs. Margarita Hadjiliasi in memory of their three children who died at an early age. The building was declared a scheduled building and was renovated by the Municipality under the supervision of the Town Planning and Housing Department.
The indoor and outdoor areas of the Folk Art Museum, as well as, the exhibition of the different household items and farming tools were arranged in collaboration with the Cyprus Handicraft Service and illustrate a typical Cypriot traditional house and functions.
Apart from the household equipment of a traditional Cypriot house, the Folk Art Museum also exhibits farming tools that were traditionally used by a rural family in the region.
All items have been kindly donated by the people of Deryneia and other neighboring areas.
In the foreyard of the Museum, there is an oven, which Mrs Margarita Hadjiliassis often uses to bake bread and rolls.
