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.

Within the Collection of Ecclesiastical Art, visitors can admire invaluable icons painted by the monk Kallinikos Stavrovouniotis, as well as other icons from his personal collection. Kallinikos Stavrovouniotis was a renowned icon painter and a generous benefactor to Athienou, and in his honor, the museum bears his name. Additionally, the Icon Painting and Mosaic Workshop features works by the talented brothers George and Alkis Kepola.

The Ethnographic Collection offers insights into the daily life of the local people in the 20th century, using a variety of exhibits, including photographic material and various objects.

To enrich the visitor experience, the museum regularly arranges tours, periodic exhibitions, educational programs, as well as presentations and conferences.
