Museum of Natural History



At the marine section visitor can view sharks and caretta caretta turtles.

Aglantzia has made much advancement during the last few years. Being spread out in the greater Nicosia area, Aglantzia still has great development potential and, due to her big green spaces, it is justifiably called the “green” municipality of Cyprus.

One of the various concerns of Aglantzia Municiplaity is to provide an intellectual gateway that promotes their cultural heritage. Hence, within the Municiplaity area visitors will find the Natural History Museum which is housed in 24 Markou Drakou street.

It hosts a rich sample of exhibits including stuffed animals and birds, a traditional Cypriot stable with horses and chickens, also vultures, peacocks, snow owls and pheasants, jackal, hares, wild cats, monkeys, wild boars, lionesses, deers, ostrichs, mouflons and squirrels.

In the museum there is also a marine section, featuring sharks, caretta caretta turtles.
