Local Kourion Museum, Episkopi

Kourion Local Museum is located in Episkopi village near Lemesos, on the road to Pafos. It is part of the private house of the late George McFadden, Assistant Director of the University of Pennsylvania, who lead extensive archaeological research at ancient Kourion and its environs from 1934 until his accidental death in 1953.

The museum building was completed in 1937 and is built of mudbrick with stone foundations. The house was handed over to the Department of Antiquities and part of it has been converted into a regional museum, which opened on December 15, 1969. In its two exhibition halls, the museum shelters finds from the ancient city of Kourion and its surrounding area.
