The Visual Sociology and Museum Studies Lab of the Cyprus University of Technology announces the launch of the 2nd edition of the Cyprus Museum Guide. The Greek edition of the guide will be available for the first time on Thursday, May 18 2017, during the International Museum Day, at the entrance of the Cyprus Museum (1 Museum street, Nicosia) between 7:00 and 9:00 pm. Furthermore, in June 2017, the Cyprus Museum Guide will be published for the first time in English thus filling an important gap in publications related to cultural tourism.
The Cyprus Museum Guide is a book that includes a wide range of information for a hundred two museums, located in the free areas of Cyprus and open to the public. The particular book is an extremely useful tool containing information about the type of each museum, its location, collections, working hours, contact details, entry/ or admission fee, accessibility for wheelchair users, possible organized guided tours, educational activities for adults and children and other activities taking place in the museum setting, the existence of a cafeteria and/ or a museum shop, as well as other important information, that both inform and facilitate museum visits. All the aforementioned information is accompanied and enhanced with rich photographic material, stylish design and practical classification, per district area and per theme.
The 2nd edition of the Cyprus Museum Guide is renewed and expanded compared to the 1st edition of 2014. Apart from containing updated information for all museums, it also includes nine newly established museums.
From June 1st, the Cyprus Museum Guide will be available for the price of 10 euros at all Mavromatis bookstores (tel.: 22456122), at selected museum stores and other bookstores. All net proceeds, from the sale of the guide, will be used for the purposes of research and promotion of Cypriot museums.
