In 2022, construction of a new archaeological museum will begin in Nicosia.

The Public Works Department has completed all necessary research. A tender is expected to be announced at the end of 2021, after which the winning developer will start implementing the project.

The cost of the new museum is estimated at 95 million euros. Completion date is scheduled for 2030.

The design of the new museum was developed by the Greek studio XZA Architects.

The company won the tender for the creation of the building as part of a two-stage international competition held in 2018. The corresponding contract with the architectural bureau was signed on March 4, 2019.

According to the chief architect Theoni Xanthi, the images for the future museum were taken from the cultures that gave rise to the Cyprus and Mediterranean civilizations.

A new archaeological museum is expected to be erected on the site of an old general hospital in Nicosia, at the intersection of Jawaharlala Nehru and Hilonos Avenue, next to the Pedios River, close to the existing Archaeological Museum and the House of Representatives.

Along the river bank there will be three snow-white buildings of the museum, installed on transparent glass cubes. Each of the buildings will house permanent and temporary exhibitions, divided into three concepts: “Culture, World Around” and “Sea”. The buildings will be surrounded by terraced gardens with trees and waterways, and in the center will be an atrium where open-air lectures can be held.

The new objects will replace the old building of the late 19th century in Nicosia, which can no longer accommodate the entire collection of antiquities.

According to the architect, the museum will be illuminated by natural light and will blur the line between the artificial landscape and the environment. This is done specifically to connect the traditional era of the golden age of Greece with modern reality.

The implementation of this large-scale project will take place in two stages:

  1. The first will include permanent and temporary exhibition halls, workshops, an antiques warehouse, administrative premises, a restaurant and cafeteria, a gift shop and various ancillary facilities.
  2. The second phase will include the library, conference room and offices of the Department of Antiquities.
