Archaeological Museum of the Lemesos (Limassol) District

The Lemesos (Limassol) District Archaeological Museum houses a rich and notable collection of antiquities from the Neolithic age to the Roman period, originating from excavations at various archaeological sites in the Lemesos region.

The exhibits are housed in three rooms and are divided into three main categories. The first room contains pottery from different historical periods; the middle room exhibits coins, jewellery, lamps and a variety of copper tools and objects, whilst the third presents sculptures, tombstones, capitals, inscriptions and other marble and limestone artefacts. A variety of objects related to the cult of Aphrodite – such as fertility and other votive offerings and female terracotta figurines – are also included in the exhibits.

The museum is linked with the Aphrodite Cultural Route.
