Pierides Museum - Bank of Cyprus Cultural Centre



The archaeological collection is hosted at the Pierides Family house in Larnaca, a building dated in 1825, and covers all main periodes of Cypriot history and prehistory.

Situated in the centre of Larnaka (Larnaca), this museum exhibits a collection of ancient, medieval, Byzantine and contemporary objects belonging to the Pierides family.

The museum is located in the ancestral Pierides family home, which was built in 1815 and is one of the oldest private museums in Cyprus.

Furthermore, the museum is one of the most important museums on the island as it contains some of the most representative items of the island's civilisation, such as a collection of old maps and charts of Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean and a prized collection of Greek and Roman glassware.

A display case of modern Greek and Cypriot sculptures can be seen in the courtyard.

The museum is linked with the Aphrodite Cultural Route.
