The Pedoulas Folkloric Museum is located in the village of Pedoulas in the Nicosia district.

It is situated in the centre of the village and it is near the main church of the Holy Cross. The Museum provides an understanding for the social and economic development of the community. It is house in a renovated house which was once the village centre.

Apart from the traditional art and occupation items, the museum presents the interior of a traditional Cypriot house, with authentic furniture, household items and local costumes.

The idea of creating the Museum occurred by the expats of Pedoulas. Later on it was taken over by the Community Council which provided the financial aid and assisted in the collection of certain items. The first financial aid came from the ship operator Mr.Vasos Hadjioannou.

It was inaugurated in 2005, by the Greek Minister of Cultural Development Mr. Demetris Avramopoulos and the Commerce, Industry and Tourism Minister of Cyprus, Mr. George Lilikkas.
