Local Ethnographic Museum of Geroskipou

The Geroskipou Local Ethnographic Museum is housed in a historic 18th century building known as the ‘House of Hadjismith’. The building belonged to Andreas Zimboulakis, a wealthy and educated man who had been appointed British Consular Agent for Western Cyprus and was in charge of supplying provisions to British troops. The name Hadjismith comes from Zimboulakis’ friendship with British Admiral Sir Sidney Smith, as well as a member of this family’s visit to the Holy Land (‘hadji’ meaning pilgrim).

The “House of Hadjismith” is a beautiful home by modern standards, and it was formerly part of a larger complex of structures. The Department of Antiquities renovated it after it was designated as an Ancient Monument. It has been an ethnographic Museum since 1978, and it houses a huge and diversified collection of exhibits from all over Cyprus, depicting daily life, various crafts and activities, and many forms of Cypriot folk art during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
