The Kourion Archaeological Museum resides within a traditional building, once the private residence of the late George McFadden. George McFadden served as the Assistant Director of the University of Pennsylvania and played a crucial role in leading extensive archaeological research in the ancient city of Kourion and its surrounding areas between 1934 and 1953.

Established in 1969, the museum comprises two exhibition halls that proudly display artifacts discovered from the nearby archaeological sites. These remarkable exhibits include red polished ware dating back to the Early Bronze Age, pottery, and exquisite golden jewelry from the Mycenaean era. Additionally, a significant collection of offerings from the nearby Sanctuary of Apollon Hylates is also on display.

Among the most awe-inspiring attractions in the museum are the skeletal remains of city inhabitants who perished during the earthquakes of the 4th century. These remains were unearthed in a Roman house and are presented in their original location, offering a unique and poignant glimpse into the past.
