The Kallinikeio Municipal Museum of Athienou, located in the Kallinikeio Municipal Hall, showcases various aspects of the area's history from the Late Bronze Age (1600-1050 BC) to the present day. It is divided into three main collections: the Archaeological Collection, the Collection of Ecclesiastical Art, and the Ethnographic Collection.
Situated in the mountainous village of Palaichori, the museum occupies a restored historic building, showcasing the abundant Byzantine art treasures derived from various churches and chapels within the village. The exhibits span from the Frankish era to contemporary times, offering a diverse array of ecclesiastical art forms like icon painting, woodcarving, silverwork, weaving, and printing—predominantly from the post-Byzantine era. Additionally, a multimedia info-kiosk is available, offering comprehensive information about the area in four different languages.
The Museum of Kykkos Monastery forms an inseparable part of the monastery complex, housing an invaluable assortment of icons, consecrated vessels, manuscripts, and Cypriot antiquities. This Monastery stands out as the wealthiest and most opulent among all of Cyprus' monasteries, majestically perched on a mountain peak at an elevation of 1,318 meters to the northwest of Troodos.
