The Archaeological Museum of the Larnaca district has reopened following extensive renovations and offers a modern take on old treasures, including an impressive collection of rare sarcophagi. 

Why should you visit a museum? There are several reasons; to seek knowledge, to take time to reflect and ponder, and to hone your critical thinking. But also, to acknowledge and appreciate the people who built and maintain the museums, and who work tirelessly to safeguard our history, thus enriching your experiential learning – along with that of future generations.
