Some of the exhibits date back to the era before Cyprus had even been settled, such as the skull and jawbone of a pygmy hippopotamus and the tusk of a dwarf elephant found on the Akrotiri peninsula. Among the finds from Kourion is a large storage jar that stands one and a half meters tall. The museum also houses an extensive collection of pottery, stone tools, gold, silver and bronze jewelry and Byzantine artifacts.
