The Pierides Foundation Archaeological Museum

Larnaca, Cyprus

The Pierides Museum is the oldest private museum in Cyprus. It is housed in the ancestral Pierides family home, a colonial style building built in 1815. The museum’s comprehensive collection was assembled by the Pierides family and includes some of the most representative items of the island’s civilisation. It charts its economic, social and cultural development over thousands of years. The objects on display dating from 4000 BC to the 15th century AD are an important testimony to a centuries old civilisation that flourished in Cyprus. Prized items in the collection are the rid polished ware from the Early Bronze Age, Roman glassware and medieval ceramic dishes. The museum is a stop on the Aphrodite Cultural Route.
