Cyprus Museum - Nicosia (Lefkosia)

The first archaeological Museum of Nicosia (Lefkosia) was housed in a building on Victoria St. in old Nicosia (Lefkosia), in the occupied part of the town. It was founded in 1888 as a privately run institution to protect the finds that started to come to light during the first legal excavations undertaken during the British rule of the island.
