In the Paphos resort of Polis Chrysochous lies the Local Archaeological Museum of Marion-Arsinoe, housing a fascinating array of antiquities uncovered from the ancient city-kingdom's former location. Comprising two rooms and an atrium, the museum showcases its exhibits in a chronological order, reflecting the historical evolution of the region from Neolithic to Medieval times. The second room proudly displays a significant collection of artifacts unearthed from the area's abundant necropolis.

In the Classical and Hellenistic periods, Marion held great prominence as a vital trading hub, maintaining strong connections with Athens. As time progressed into the Hellenistic-Roman era, Marion underwent a name change to Arsinoe and has now become the charming town of Polis Chrysochous, more commonly referred to as 'Polis.'
