Attractions Limassol Cyprus Historic and Classic Motor Museum

Cyprus Historic and Classic Motor Museum

The Cyprus Historic and Classic Motor Museum is comprised of the personal car collection of veteran champion of international and Cypriot rally competitions, Mr Dimi Mavropoulos, who founded the museum especially to display the eclectic collection.

The museum highlights the cultural importance of the development and growth of the automobile industry and includes a Ford ‘T’ roadster from 1912, which has over 100 years of life on the road. Vehicles that have both cultural and emotional significance for the Cypriot people are also exhibited, and include the armoured presidential Cadillac, donated by the US government and built especially for President Makarios III in 1977.

You will also find the well-known – and officially certified – green Mini from the popular ‘Mr Bean’ movies, as well as one of the Rover P5 cars of 1973 used by the ‘Iron Lady’ Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of the UK.
