The Ecclesiastical Museum of Paphos can be found in the central square of Geroskipou, housed in the same building that once served as the old elementary school of the area.

Inside the museum, visitors can explore a remarkable collection of various items, including icons, ecclesiastical metallic objects like censers, lamps, and candlesticks. Additionally, there is a collection of intricately carved wooden pieces, such as the iconostasis, Royal doors, and crucifixions.

The museum also boasts an impressive array of ecclesiastical embroidery, featuring gold sacerdotal vestments and epitaphs. For history enthusiasts, there's a fascinating collection of manuscripts and old books, including notable items like the Gospels of 1462 and 1604, the Hymnologium from the 15th century, and the Firmany of 1853. Among the most distinguished exhibits is the small icon of Agia Marina, portrayed in the orans position with uplifted arms. This icon holds special significance as it is one of the oldest in Cyprus, dating back to the pre-iconoclastic period of the 7th-8th century.
