The Larnaca District Archaeological Museum contains an extensive assortment of archaeological discoveries from the entire Larnaka district, encompassing artifacts from the ancient city-kingdom of Kition, as well as the major Neolithic settlements of Choirokitia and Tenta - Kalavasos.

Among the exhibits are items dating back to various historical periods, such as the Neolithic period, the Copper Era, and the Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic, and Roman eras. Notably, the museum showcases faience (tin-glazed pottery), ivory, and alabaster pieces, providing evidence of Cyprus' commercial and international connections with different countries during antiquity.

In addition to the local exhibits, the museum proudly presents a selection of exceptional objects originating from Egypt, Mycenae, Phoenicia, Assyria, and Persia. These items were discovered in the Larnaca region, indicating potential trade and interactions with other great ancient civilizations situated close to the island.
