"The Municipal Museum of Folk Art, which opened on the 20th June 1985, includes one of the most important collections of Cypriot folk art and craft from the late 19th century until the beginning of the 20th century. The museum is housed in a listed building, donated by the Ioannis and Katerina Schiza family, located in the corner of Ayiou Andreou Street and Othonos and Amalias Street which used to be a municipal retirement home for seniors.
The renovation of the building and its transformation to the Municipal Museum of Folk Art took place between 1984 and 1985 and the official opening took place in June 1985. "
