Folk Art Museum

Folk Art Museum | Kyrenia

The main entrance to the Folk Art Museum is from the harbour. Formerly a granary or carob store it was owned by Lady Loch, a well known Cyprus benefactor, and donated to the Antiquities department to be used as a museum. The interior has been laid out in the style of a home that is typically Cypriot and has displays of needlework and bridal costumes. Also displayed on the lower floor are an olive press and a loom.

Admission fee applicable.

Opening times are erratic.

Lavinia Neville Smith
Lavinia Neville Smith first came to North Cyprus in 1995, and fell in love with the country and the Turkish Cypriot people. A self confessed dilettante, with a varied working career, it was not until she returned in 1997 and went into tourism that she was able to put to good use her knowledge of history, ancient and modern, acquired long ago at school. She is a co-author of the Landmark Visitors Guide to North Cyprus, and continues to promote this beautiful country as far afield as possible.
