Relocating the archaeological museum to the site transforms its potential. It places visitors and staff in close connection with real and ongoing archaeological investigation, serving both to contextualise the artefacts displayed in the collection and to demonstrate how archaeology is a dynamic process that continuously enriches and revises our understanding of the past.
The Archaeological Museum of Cyprus
In 2017, we proposed to relocate the Cyprus Archaeological Museum to the Hill of Agios Georgios, onto the site formerly planned for the new House of Representatives. This site has a rich and unique archaeological heritage that traces continuous occupation since the foundation of settlement in Nicosia. So extensive and varied were the discoveries made that the planned House of Representatives had to be abandoned in this location.
