The Museum of Folk Art or the Ethnographic Museum of Nicosia is located in the town of Nicosia beside the Cathedral of Agios Ioannis Evangelistis, the Byzantine Museum of Cyprus, the National Struggle Museum, and the current Archbhishop's Palace.

The museum accommodates the largest collection of ethnographic objects in the country, which includes clothing, ceramics, metal work, wood work and paintings.

Nicosia accommodated a large number of art rooms. The Municipal Arts Centre of Nicosia cooperates with the Museum of Modern Art which opened in January 1994 and is located at the old power station. The old power station was given by the Electricity Company of Cyprus.
