Presented by Clio and Solon Triantafyllides, the museum houses an exceptional private collection of Greek Mycenaean pottery, making it one of the most significant on the island. The collection features a distinct anthropomorphic vessel, along with the renowned white slip and base ring styles – both iconic pottery forms from Cyprus during the Late Bronze Age, renowned worldwide.

The most valuable segment of the collection comprises limestone sculptures dating from the 6th century to the Hellenistic period. Additionally, the museum boasts an array of exhibits, including clay figurines, coins, jewelry, and copper artifacts, totaling in the hundreds.

Visitors can enjoy an interactive experience with the aid of the SPYRA Innovative Digital Archaeological Explorer. By inserting (imitation) fragments into the machine's base, they can witness simulations of their chosen pieces, complete with images displaying how the exhibits would have appeared along with relevant historical information.
