Located at the end of Foinikoudes' palm-tree lined promenade, the Medieval Museum of Larnaca resides on the second floor of the Medieval Fort. Within its three rooms, the museum showcases a diverse collection spanning 15 centuries of history. Exhibits and artifacts from the Early Christian period (4th-7th centuries), Byzantine wall-paintings of the 11th - 16th centuries, Medieval glazed pottery from the 12th-18th century, Venetian helmets and swords (15th-16th century), as well as Ottoman metal cooking utensils (18th-19th century) can be explored.

The courtyard of the fort houses a fascinating assortment of Ottoman cannons and is also home to a 600-seat open-air theatre, often utilized for events during the summer.

Originally constructed during the Middle Ages, the fort assumed its present form during Ottoman rule. After the Ottoman era ended in Cyprus, the British repurposed the structure into a prison, using it during the early years of their rule.
