Paphos Ethnographical Museum

Ethnographical Museum

The famous Ethnographical Museum of Paphos is one of the most traditional venues you could pick for a civil or religious wedding ceremony. Found in the heart of the old town of Paphos you can have a truly unique and private wedding and reception. Sheltered from public view the exterior courtyard area of the museum provides a totally intimate outdoor space.

The museum itself is set in a private house which has been owned by the Eliades family for generations. The family founded the museum in 1958 and the George Eliades’ daughter still takes care of the museum today. The exhibits are specific to the customs and living conditions of Cypriot locals for centuries.

The museum can offer Champagne and canapés to be served after the wedding if you so choose. You can also have a reception meal plus entertainment held at this venue. The courtyard by evening is stunning with the exterior lighting.

The Ethnographical Museum is fast becoming a popular venue for traditional weddings due to the privacy and beauty of this amazing setting.
