The Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia was established in April 1989, and it resides in a complex of three historic buildings that have been meticulously restored and modernized to meet contemporary museological standards. The aim is to offer visitors a welcoming and enjoyable space to explore its rich Collections.
Dedicated to presenting the history of Nicosia, the last divided capital of Europe, the Museum takes visitors on a journey through time, covering the city's past from prehistoric ages to the present day. Its exceptional Collections, comprising over 10,000 objects such as maps, documents, paintings, engravings, and costumes, eloquently narrate the story of Nicosia.
