General information

The Cyprus Historic and Classic Motor Museum opened in 2014 and is the only car museum in Cyprus. Located on the outskirts of Limassol, the museum has around 60 vehicles, mostly classic and modern cars but also including a small number of other vehicles, such as antique road rollers, a couple of police cars, a British Army armored car, and several buses and trucks. There are some unique vehicles and some related to the history of Cyprus. On 3000 square meters, you can admire Classic, Historic and Collectible Cars.

The oldest car in the collection at the moment is a Ford “T” roadster from 1912, the newest vehicle is a collectible piece from 2004.

The founding of the museum is due to the vision of veteran Rally Racing champion of International and Cypriot rally competitions, Mr. Dimi Mavropoulos. He gave his personal collection of 90 historic, classic and collectable cars and launched this museum especially for their display.

For instance they have an armoured presidential «Cadillac» donated by the U.S. government and built especially for the President Makarios III in 1977. Unfortunately, he never was able to use it and so it passed into the hands of the presidential guard and the subsequent governments. Because of the armour, it weighs 4.2 tons, has bulletproof windows that do not open, and features air conditioning with protection from harmful gases.

You can also hire a car for your wedding.
