About The Museum
Welcome to the THALASSA Municipal Museum, which was opened in August 2005, and it is directed by the Pierides Foundation, in association with the Hellenic Institute for the Preservation of Nautical Tradition and the Tornaritis-Pierides Marine Life Foundation.
The museum is a three story building made by marble, onyx, wood, metal and offers unique experiences appealing to all our senses with its ‘bird eye view’. It incorporates seven levels and the paleontological, geological, archaeological, marine life exhibits are presented in underground showcases, where the visitors are able to walk and view the objects from the top, in modern showcases, exhibits freely placed in the museum whereas other they are hanging from the roof.
The Museum is located at the centre of Agia Napa and it has the sea as a subject-matter. It is the first museum of its kind across the Mediterranean region with main principle to present to the audiences, the local and foreign visitors, the impact and the significance of the sea upon the history of the island. The exhibits of the museum cover a chronological span, from paleontological to historic periods until present times.
The museum’s collections are derived from the Cyprus Department of Antiquities, the Pierides-Tornaritis Marine Life Foundation, the Museum Pierides- Laiki Group Cultural Centre, and the Hellenic Institute for the Preservation of Nautical Tradition and the personal collection of Demetrios Z. Pierides.
Our Museum has a whole host of tours and events across the year to enhance the cultural experience for visitors of all ages. We will be updating the event listings periocally.
