New Virtual Museums to Explore in Larnaca

The Larnaka Virtual Museums platform launched in 2021 has been expanded to include further museums, with an additional three museums now live, cementing this initiative that won Bronze at the Cyprus Tourism Awards 2021. 

The platform offers 360° tours of the region’s museums with added, enriched content, including 3D renditions and supporting audio and video content. It can be used as an interactive way to discover the museums at home, or whilst at the physical premises to create a hybrid experience (simply scan the QR code outside participating museums). 

The new additions are:

Byzantine Museum of Saint Lazarus Church 

Kato Drys Bee & Embroidery Museum 

Museum of Christian Art – Christoforou Collection

The inclusion of the Museum of Christian Art – Christoforou Collection coincides with the gallery’s official opening, which took place at the premises on September 20. 

Housed in a historic residence in Aradippou, the museum is divided into five themed exhibits: Greece-Cyprus; Europe; Russia; South America, and Engravings, and exhibits over 300 pieces depicting the Greek Orthodox and various other faiths from around the world. Included in the collection are works by Salvador Dali and Raphael, and an original engraving by Rembrandt. The impressive collection is from the private collection of retired Cypriot diplomat Charalambos Christoforou. 

The next museums to be added to the platform are the Local Museum of Traditional Embroidery and Silversmith-work, Lefkara, the Archaeological Museum of the Larnaka District and the Municipal Museum of Natural History with their inclusion anticipated by the end of the year. 

It is reminded that the museums initially included are: 

Larnaka Historic Archives Museum 

Pierides Museum - Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation 

Kyriazis Medical Museum 

Kallinikeio Municipal Museum of Athienou 

Livadia Craft of Caning Museum
