SYM (265)1

Τhe Limassol, Patticheion Municipal Museum-Historic Archives and Research Centre is based on a basic theoretical idea which answers to the question “How old is the past?: A museum of the civilisation of the city of Limassol is primarily a museum of society which extends throughout the last four centuries. The initial impact on entering the museum is in stark contrast to that on going into a typical museum. This sort of museum ‘springs’ from the history of Limassol. It is focused on societal phenomena, the big issues that people face, which express their lifestyles, their conflicts, their culture, their aspirations, especially their understanding of the city of Limassol as a state of mind.
