In one to a month and a half, the museum of the Limassol Carnival, which will be housed in the “Panos Solomonidis” cultural center, is expected to open, with Mayor Nikos Nicolaidis looking forward to the creation of the most visited museum in the place.

< p data-block-key="lorb">Nikos Nicolaidis, accompanied by members of the municipal council, inspected in the morning the works for the Limassol Carnival museum, which are in their final stage and as he said in his statement “one of the most important Carnival cities in the world could not don't have a carnival museum”.

The cultural center “Panos Solomonidis”, he explained, was chosen to host the museum, as it offered the required space but also because it is in a area with other cultural sites, which the visitor can visit on foot.

The carnival museum consists, Mr. Nikolaidis continued, of two floors with exhibits and workshop rooms, while a cafeteria will operate on the roof. He also noted that relics, photographs, videos and uniforms were also secured by the Patticheio Municipal Museum – Historical Archive of Limassol, from institutions, organizations and also ordinary citizens.

“With its operation, in one to one and a half months, synergies will be created with the Theater Museum and I am sure that it will be the most visited museum in our country”, he added.

For his part, architect-museologist Giorgos Papadopoulos said that special emphasis was placed on the interactivity of the museum, as children will be able to learn the history of the Limassol carnival through interactive games.

When asked about it, he said that the oldest exhibit might be the permits secured by the municipal authorities, from the British administration, for the parade, during the 1930s.
