*** Please note that this Museum is currently closed, as part of the renovation of the Municipal Gardens.

Located within the grounds of the Municipal Gardens and its park, Larnaka’s quaint Municipal Museum of Natural History displays a number of thematic collections, including local reptiles, insects, birds, animals, marine life, fossils and rock formations.

The marine life collection is comprised of international and local shells, corals, sponges and sea creatures, whilst a ‘traditional Cypriot yard’ includes the Cyprus donkey. Another notable collection is that of the island’s insects and endemic plants.
