The house belonged to Hatjigeorgakis Cornesius family and now a museum with very well kept rooms but with not so professionally made models of residents and servants.

It is the house of an old rich Cypriot family. Inside they have an external kitchen, The Hamam, Turkish bath, is incredible and the rooms, enough say you cannot see that everywhere.

The house itself is really the attraction but is furnished with Ottoman memorabilia to demonstrate life in those times. The living quarters are not to be missed nor the ornate wooden roof ceiling decorations.

The house is a great history lesson and example of the local culture. A longtime favorite of local schools, obvious by the large number of students. I would need more explanatory signs or at least a booklet, map, something. But the place deserves more, for...More

The Museum is housed in the mansion of Hadjigeorgakis Kornesios, a notable and wealthy Greek Cypriot official to the Ottoman empire. The mansion was commendably restored and it is full of exquisite furniture and ornaments. I am certain that all visitors to the Museum are...More

This mansion is a nice example of old/traditional architecture of Cyprus. Most of the attractions are on the top floor, including bedroom, clothe samples, traditional pottery and jewelery.
