Yeroskipou Folk Art Museum

The museum is housed in the 18th century “house of Hadjismith”. It carries a rich collection of Cypriot folk art and crafts consisting of pottery, kilims and scarves, as well as tools used in silk production. The building is named after Sir Sidney Smith, a British Admiral, who appointed the owner of the house, Andreas Zimboulaki,  British consul. Thus the house came to be referred to as ‘‘the house of Hadjismith”.
