The Ethnographic Museum, founded in 1958, is a private institution showcasing the personal collection of the late George Eliades. This esteemed intellectual had a passion for archaeology, history, folk art, and literature, leading him to amass a remarkable array of art treasures from the rural regions of Cyprus, particularly Paphos.

Occupying a charming 1894 stone residence with a two-story layout, the museum's architecture features three distinct Gothic-style arches and exquisite gardens.

Within its halls, visitors can explore a diverse range of exhibits, including rural costumes and trimmings, traditional carved wooden furniture, Venetian mirrors, farming tools, kitchen utensils, clay artifacts, looms, and woven articles. Furthermore, the museum proudly houses archaeological finds predominantly from the Chalcolithic period, comprising coins, jewelry, amphorae, water jugs, and various other fascinating relics.

Additionally, the Ethnographic Museum collaborates with the Anglican Church to host both civil and religious weddings, providing a picturesque setting for couples seeking a memorable celebration.
