The Paphos District Archaeological Museum displays a collection of artifacts discovered in the Paphos region, spanning from the Neolithic Age to 1700 AD. The exhibits are spread across five rooms and primarily originate from Palaipafos (Kouklia), Nea Paphos (modern-day Paphos), and Marion-Arsinoe (Polis). Additional items come from various locations such as Pegeia, Kissonerga, Lempa, Pano Arodes, Salamiou, Akourdalia, Pomos, Kidasi, and Geroskipou.

In the first room, visitors can explore artifacts from the Neolithic, Chalcolithic, and Bronze Age periods, including coins minted in Paphos. The second room showcases exhibits from the Iron Age and Classical era, featuring notable items like a tombstone from Marion with the Cyprosyllabic script. Moving on to the third room, visitors will find artifacts from the Hellenistic and Roman periods, with highlights such as a rare marble bust of Aphrodite and a marble statue of Asklepios. The fourth room houses exhibits from the late Roman and early Christian periods, while the newer fifth room is dedicated to pieces from the Byzantine Period and the Middle Ages in general.
