Situated within the former residence of the District Officer adjacent to the Municipal Gardens, the Municipal Museum serves a dual purpose as the historical repository of Limassol while also presenting the city's captivating history and culture spanning from the 18th century onwards. This collection is brought to life through an array of mediums, including written and oral documents, photographs, videos, newspaper and magazine clippings, furniture, ornaments, artifacts, clothing, and various other historical sources.

The restoration of the building was undertaken by the municipality between 2002 and 2011. In collaboration with the island's Press and Information Office, the museum now offers an accessible platform for scientists, researchers, journalists, university students, and the public at large to access digitized archives on Lemesos.

The museum's four archives hold immense historical value, featuring: The Newspaper Archive dating back to 1878, The Press Releases Archive dating from 1962, The Photography Archive, and The Film Archive in digital format.
